  • Featuring the famous market as dry squid, stockfish, dried, such as Empress Dowager was a bunch of stores. In addition to dried fish can be found in other markets, such as selling the expression, ddeok-Bok-GI snack shop, and the scale of market or near Dongdaemun market still small, but I think that the specialized market up ~ ^^

  • Seoul city he visited during the walk. Wide. It is very wide. And the dried fish, dried fish... dry wholesale market town. Center Mall roof as well, relatively new and clean. Step back into atmosphere of the local market. Dried fish and the smell... a moment lost, but later on the map and so alley complex is not. Reminds me of Japan Amoco.

  • Went on Sunday, little shop was not open. I'd enjoy more on a week day. If otherwise, but I think if you buy dried or dried and super market different I think.
