According to the Korean Culture Heritage Administration, for 50,000 won you can relive a Joseon Dynasty’s royal experience from September 3rd through the 24th with two evening tours.

According to Koreabizwire (http://koreabizwire.com/experience-an-evening-of-korean-royalty-at-gyeon...):

The evening will start with a dinner meal called “Surasang” in the palace kitchen. Traditionally consisting of 12 dishes (not including rice, soup and other condiments), the meal participants will eat will be a modified version to suit the tastes of the modern generation.

After dinner, the participants will be led on a guided tour of Gyotaejeon Hall (the Queen’s residence), the Jagyeongjeon Chamber (where the King’s mother resided) and Hamhwadang and Jipgyeongdang Halls (where concubines and servant girls resided).

After the tour, the guide will lead the group to the second floor of Gyeonghoeru Pavilion, where participants will be free to take photos and indulge in the evening view of the palace grounds.

The program runs at 6:30 p.m. and 7:40 p.m. daily. and you can reserve tickets here (http://ticket.auction.co.kr/).
