Tourist guide

It is 9km of Jeongseon-eup, and it was founded by An Jeongeun who ran the first Korean puppet theater for 30 years. He rented Najeon School as a puppet studio and exhibited a few puppets in 1998. Then, he opened Arari Puppet House on April 30th, 2002. As it displays puppets for shows professionally, the puppets that appeared on world and national shows are housed.
