“Nothing for tourists”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

This is an inside, small market with some really nice items like old records and furniture. If you live in Seoul you can find great things for your house, but as a tourist? There is more western style items than korean or traditional items. The food is also nothing traditional, just Korean street food.
You can reach it from the Cheonggyecheon Stream. No subways are near nor nice restaurants. Across the street you will find Lotte Castle, a dragon of an apartment complex within an E-mart, cinema and a nice coffee shop.

“Almost a total waste of time”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2011

I was led to believe that this was the place to come if you want vintage junk bordering on antiques. There was very little of that here. The entire second floor consited of rows of booths all selling the same things. hair products in one row, bootleg cd's in another, sex toys in one, and a whole lot of garden tools. Downstairs, there was some used clothing and one row of older items. There were also people selling thigns outside, none of which were particularly interesting. I LOVE flea markets, but this was quite easily the worst one I have seen in the whole world thus far.
