Le sactuaire de Gyeonggijeon a été élevé en 1410 pour abriter le portrait du roi Taejo, fondateur de la dynastie Joseon. Ce lieu saint comporte Jinjeon où se trouve le portrait, et Jogyeongmyo abritant les plaques commémoratives de Han Lee et de sa femme, ancêtres de la famille royale Lee de Jeonju. Détruit en partie durant l’invasion des forces japonaises (1592-1598), le Gyeonggijeon qui existe actuellement a été rénové en 1614.

Omokdae, situé en haut d'une colline est le lieu où Yi Seong-gye (qui devint plus tard le Roi Taejo) s'arreta pour célébrer sa victoire lors d'une bataille contre l'armée japonaise au Mont Hwangsan à Unbong vers la fin de la période Goryeo. C'est aussi là où Mokjo, l'un des ancêtres de Yi Seong-gye, vécut. Plus tard, le Roi Gojong y établit une statue monumentale, “Taejogohwang Jejupilyujibi” avec une phrase écrite de sa propre main. De l'autre côté de Yukgyo, à partir d'Omokdae, se trouve Yimokdae, au pied du Mont Seungamsan où Chimyeongjasan, sité sacré pour les catholiques demeure. A 80 m de Yimokdae se trouvent un mémorial et une maison. “Mokjodaewang Gugeoyuji”, la phrase gravée sur le monument en pierre, fut écrite par le Roi Gojong en personne. Mokjo est le cinquième ancêtre du Roi Taejo, qui fonda la Dynastie Joseon. Imokdae est connue pour être le lieu où Mokjo vécut, jouant à des jeux de formation de bataille avec ses amis étant enfant. Cette anecdote apparait également dans le Yongbieocheonga (ballade du 15e siècle narrant la longévité nationale et la réussite culturelle). Mokjo se rendit à Hamgyeong-do à partir d'Imokdae (à Jeonju) en raison de la querelle qu'il eut avec le Jeonju Busan (officiel de l'etat gouvernant la région de Jeonju). Yi Seong-gye pensa que le départ de Mokjo était quelque chose ayant été guidé par les dieux afin qu'il (Yi Seong-gye) puisse fonder Joseon et devenir le premier roi de la dynastie.

Gyodong Gaon is located right in the middle of the main street of Jeonju Hanok Village. The word "gaon" means "middle" in Korean. It's a two-story traditional Korean house that stands out among the rest of the traditional Korean houses in the alley leading to Omokdae. Just inside the gate is a yard with colorful flower trees, jars of sauces, and furnace. The mural on one of the walls is popular among the guests as a place to take photos.
The "numaru", or "loft" in Korean, overlooks the Hanok Village, and is one of the best places in the village to get a closer look at the 500 year old zelkova tree and the foot of the mountain nearby. Open to all the guests, the "numaru" is very popular during the winter as well as the summer. It's an open space with a wooden floor, so it's very cool during the summer, and it also serves as an observatory to enjoy the view of all the snow-covered trees and roofs in the Hanok Village during the winter while having a hot cup of tea.
The owner of the guesthouse has been living here for 37 years. He rebuilt his house and turned it into a hanok guesthouse in 2014 while making sure the rooms are well insulated and comfortable to stay.
He built a two-story building to make an efficient use of the space, and focused on making all the rooms look different. The house has five rooms, and only the “Meomulda Room” on the first floor is the only rooms with a living room separated from the bedroom. All you have to do is open the door to enjoy the view of the yard, Hanok Village, and Omokdae. The “Nanuda Room” on the second floor is the largest one that can accommodate more than five people, making it the most popular choice among families. The "Damda Room" and "Kkumkkuda Room" both have an attic that can be reached by a ladder. The attic is big enough to sleep two adults, and some guests actually sleep there for a unique experience. One of the walls of the attic is finished with cypress wood which has a pleasant scent. The “Geurida Room” has the best view through the two windows on the either side of the room, in addition to warm sunlight and cool wind that come through the window. Modern, not traditional, doors are installed in all the rooms for better sound proofing and insulation.
Gyodong Gaon offers a number of experience programs, such as traditional games like “gulleongsoe”, “tuho", and “Korean top”, As well as “sabang chigi”, “sampalseon”, and “ttangttameokgi”.
Many Korean adults are familiar with these games, while children and foreigners can find these games interesting. All these traditional Korean games are free to play.

Sky is a guesthouse located in an alley next to the Jeonju Hanok Village Parking Lot. The house was built in 1930 and remodeled in 2014. It was originally a Japanese-style house, but the original building was completely demolished and a traditional Korean house was built in its place. The sheets and blankets in all the guestrooms are embroidered by the owner of the guesthouse. Her embroidery skills make some of the guests choose to stay at this guesthouse since they can learn the trade from her. She offers an embroidery class for such guests for only KRW 4,000 per person, and only 5 people are allowed in the class. If you want, you can also play the traditional Korean game called "yutnori" for free.

Yeohangga is a guesthouse owned and run by a woman who majored in early childhood education and who has been teaching children for over 20 years. The name means "A home for a happy trip," she says. It’s a unique guesthouse since the owner offers various traditional educational games. The cozy and comfortable guesthouse is a traditional Korean house built in March 2013 at a site where an old house used to be. The main building and detached building are divided by the ridge of the roof with beautiful rafters. There is another meaning to the name of the guesthouse: "a house where the woman is happy." She named it as such for a good reason. She used to live in Seoul when her parents advised her to move to Jeonju and run a guesthouse, leaving her husband and child behind. At first, she considered accepting only female guests, but it wasn't an option since most of the people visiting Jeonju are couples and groups of friends. Instead, she made sure the guesthouse is safe for women while building the house. Many female tourists traveling alone find this a great feature of the guesthouse because they feel safer during their stay. For one, she installed three doors for the rooms (1 transparent door, 1 opaque glass door, and a traditional Korean door). Not only do the guests feel safer; the rooms are also well-insulated thanks to the triple doors. The floors and walls are covered with traditional Korean paper coated with soybean oil, which is very environment-friendly. In the four rooms named “Spring,” “Summer,” “Autumn,” and “Winter,” there are many toys and materials for traditional Korean cognition games, such as “Chilgyo Game,” “Gonu Game,” and “Mabangjin.” It’s very likely that even Koreans have never heard of these games. The owner of the guesthouse chose these games specifically because they are perfect for children to play in a traditional Korean house. She teaches her little guests how to play the games. “Chilgyo Game” involves making a shape with 7 to 20 pieces, whereas “Gonu Game” is similar to the game of Chinese chess. "Mabangjin" is a type of IQ game that involves laying down a total of nine different numbers in three rows and columns so that the sum of the three numbers is identical when added horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. Many guests find these games interesting, and the owner of the guesthouse finds joy in teaching these games to as many families as possible. She recently took over another traditional Korean guesthouse called "Samrakheon" near the Jeonju Oriental Medicine Center. It's a stand-alone guesthouse for groups and families, and she uses the place to teach traditional games to more people.

Good Day is a traditional Korean house situated in Jeondong Catholic Cathedral Street in Wansan-gu, Jeonju, Jeollabuk-do. It was originally built in 1942 and remodeled in 2011 as a guesthouse by the current owner. The guesthouse has most of the features of a traditional Korean house still intact, but with modern amenities added for the comfort of the guests. The floor, walls, and ceiling are coated with red clay, and the ceiling rafters are visible as in most traditional Korean houses. Many guests say that sleeping in a room made of these natural materials helps them relieve fatigue. The rooms are well-insulated and warm for the cold winter days. The guesthouse is close to Gyeonggijeon Shrine, which enshrines a portrait of Taejo Yi Seong-gye, the first king of Joseon, and is conveniently located for those wishing to take a tour of Jeonju Hanok Village featuring hundreds of traditional Korean houses, Omokdae, and Jeondong Catholic Cathedral. In addition to these tourist attractions, there is also a traditional marketplace called Nambu Market with lots to eat and see. The guesthouse owner named it "Good Day" because he wishes all his guests to have a good day during their stay. He decorated every corner of the guesthouse with this in mind. The grass yard and colorful garden are beautiful throughout the seasons. The garden includes a mix of wild flowers, pine nut trees, fig trees, pomegranate trees, grape vines, and jujube trees. The “toetmaru (open living room with wooden floor)" right in front of the garden is also decorated with small flowerpots. The “toetmaru” is the most popular place among the guests because it’s a great place to enjoy the sun and breathe in the scent of flowers. On a rainy day, you can hear the raindrops falling down the eaves. There are six guestrooms at the guesthouse, named "Spring Waltz,” “Summer Tiffany,” “Autumn Pomegranate,” “Winter Festival”, "Sunshine", and "Welcome." The ceiling rafters are visible in all the rooms as in most of traditional Korean houses. The rooms are furnished with TV, refrigerator, and air conditioner. The bathroom comes with shower booth and bidet. People of different age groups come to stay at this guesthouse, and most of them say the guesthouse is clean and comfortable to stay in, thanks to the owner who sun-dries the sheets and blankets on the rooftop, cleans the rooms, and cultivates the garden every day of the year to make sure that the guests can have a comfortable, memorable stay. The guesthouse is conveniently located near a number of tourist destinations as well.
