ABSTRACT

This research examines the performativity of three cases of living history tourism in South Korea: Korean Folk Village, the royal guard-changing ceremony, and the Hanbok experience. Living history is a form of cultural tourism involving the presence of costumed performers at historical sites. Framing them as living history, it aims to highlight their performative nature and to further contextualize it with the discourse of performance. As an interdisciplinary inquiry, this study argues that dance and non-dance phenomena should be contextualized since moving bodies are cultural constructs.
