Several short streets for shopping like casual shoes, T-shirts and bags. Not pricey but quality matches the price. Not many street food stalls. Popular food to try would be the stuffed donuts and HotDeok. Spent less than an hour here.

I would say this market is fairly traditional. A lot of gods, a lot of fake brands, narrow lanes and crowded. If you want to buy clothes from the market, or well, from most places, be prepared! Take your measures beforehand and bring your tape-measure!...More
