  • Yangnyeongsi is leaving jegi-dong station. Fewer tourists, felt that is familiar to the local market. Are lined with dried herbal medicine shops. Too many fresh vegetables such as greengrocer's shop. Very few people can enjoy Asian atmosphere, go shopping with tourists. To those interested in medicine and Pharmacy Museum is recommended. In the medicine market.
