Designated as a Traditional Market for Foreigners to Visit, Seomun Market has been widely known as one of Korea’s Top Three Traditional Markets that took its form during the mid-Joseon period.
The market consists of eight shopping centers filled with about 5,000 shops, accommodating up to 20,000 vendors. It is particularly known for specializing in high-quality hanbok, clothes, beddings, fabrics, and curtains. It also offers a variety of goods encompassing accessories, kitchenware, fruits, vegetables, and dried and fresh seafood.  
Korea’s largest permanent night market is held here. By offering 80 types of street foods and things to buy as well as hosting different cultural events on a regular basis, it has become a globally-known tourist attraction equipped with Media Façade and Play Zone. Seomun Song Festival and nearby Seomun Hanok Guesthouse are also on the what-not-to-miss list.
