Abstract (in English)

The hanok (traditional Korean house) regeneration project seemed impossible in Seoul ten years ago because conserving dismal hanoks had been considered unnecessary as a burden on the economy. The hanok regeneration project, however, is now regarded as a successful attempt to protect the time-honoured dwellings and has far-reaching benefits on the economy as well. This paper will highlight the economic effects of the hanok regeneration project in Seoul such as the increase of number of visitors and land prices and the survival of an almost disappeared traditional industry and that it can be an invaluable reference for other cultural heritage preservation projects.
