What you'll do

We'll meet at Dongmyo Subway Station and walk through the bustling alleyways where local vendors sell literally all kinds of things. You will be able to find old Korean pins, coins, watches, antiques, bowls, books, unconventional souvenirs, retro and vintage clothing, and other curiosities that you can't find anywhere else in the city. The street vendors have a lot of variety in what they sell and prices are usually made up on the spot. I will help translate and barter for you, and navigate you to some of my favorite spots. In this way, we will slowly make our way to the Seoul Folk Flea Market, which is a two-storey building that houses vendors with permanent stalls offering rare goods, Korean furniture, old record players, LPs, musical instruments, statues, costumes, and so on at a slightly higher price than on the street. After we've had our fill of shopping, we'll grab some kimchi pancakes and have traditional rice wine right there in the market and look through our finds.

Mark

I came here over 10 years ago to study literature and I've lived in Seoul ever since. Digging deeper into Korean culture is what keeps me here and the discoveries are endless. I particularly like exploring the hard-to-find, left-behind, or nearly forgotten parts. I've been visiting the swap meet district for years, first to shop for cheap clothes when I was a student, and now to collect and curate Korean antiques and oddities from past times. I go almost every weekend and post pictures of what I find. I speak fluent Korean and will be joined by my best friend, Soyoung.
