  • I went to the parents ' House in Jeju Island in dry Tots went to the market to buy, and alumni. Normally, every time you go to buy a geometry geometry mochi Alumni on the market. They're great as a gift. I'd always go in the afternoon, this time by the store at 8:00 am, just plain as shops opened the door and I was worried it was tilting. Arriving already there was a window open. An expression of the people alive and really hectic market and I feel I'm getting to come alive. In addition, energy is coming back as the fullness. Cheap and good quality is the primary agent ^ ^

She shouted to us while we want to buy permission. Please don't go to fruit shop number 40 that selling the mandarin and persimmon. I feel that she is very racist with the foreigner. Hopefully the KTO will look into this.
  • Not my kind of fish market place. It's just... fishy... maybe if I can cook like a local in my own house, it's worth a visit. If you're just a tourist who can't cook at the hotel room like me, then you can skip this place entirely.
  • Y'know what, you can buy fish and ship it to Seoul for free. You don't have to carry it with you to the airport and worry about all that. The fish is fresh, but make sure you can speak Korean
  • A great place to visit for shopping, groceries, trinkets, candy, and clothes. A traditional Korean market.
  • Typical Korean marked, with emphasis on seafood. But, here the Koreans on holiday are buying presents for family and friends and the vendors ship them directly. This includes fresh fish...
