Dongmyo Flea Market
More and more young people are familiar with this hidden gem of a location because of the filming "Infinite Challenge" with G-Dragon and Jeong Hyeong-don.
This is a flea market in Seoul that sells absolutely everything. We'd like to introduce you to Dongmyo Flea Market, where you can get anything from handicrafts to designer clothing.
There are stylish garments prominently displayed everywhere.
Here, you can find the kinds of clothing that are often difficult to find.
Dongmyo Flea Market vendors are busking on the street. The weather is pleasant today, making it ideal for outdoor pursuits. You can buy a wide variety of items, from handbags and guitars to hats and jewelry, here.
You can now see Cheonggyecheon directly in front of you. The area was frequented by Korean engineers before the demolition of the previous overpass. There are still a lot of technicians out there, but not quite as many as there used to be. Both Euljiro and Jongno are typical of the 1970s and 1980s when Seoul was at the height of its industrialization.
Padded jackets and many sorts of bags can be seen. Clothing that would be unthinkable in the real world is very common to find here.
There are thousands of shoe pairs from labels like Vans, Nike, and Fila. As used clothing is not something I typically have access to, I went just looking around.
Knitwear from Ralph Lauren and outerwear by Burberry can also be seen. It could be a good deal if it looks good and costs less than expected. Several customers arrive with big carts and luggage.
This Burberry black coat will be wonderful for the winter. The weather is warming up, so I expect it to be a challenge, but I hope to be able to wear it by the end of the year.
The construction boom is happening in the Dongmyo and Sinseol-dong neighborhoods. Many of the older structures are being demolished and replaced with brand-new ones. Still, it's great to see certain locations maintaining their historic charm.
There were a lot of people in the Dongmyo Flea Market. Apart from the eateries, no businesses were open. A flea market can be seen in front of the closed shops.
Here, you can buy food and alcoholic beverages. I think I'd be good if I could be mildly inebriated on a weekend during the day. Having a day where I can feel happy and carefree is something to look forward to.
I like this vintage style so much. The font, hue, level of rust, and even the building materials themselves all reveal information about the passage of time.
I believe I've discovered a decent eatery. The restaurant was packed on the inside, and there were a lot of tourists, including some Koreans, waiting outside. The eatery famous for its cuisine and homemade fish cakes is called Jeongeup Sikdang.
Instruments made of brass and other metals are also available. Strange things constantly pop into my eyes, there's no time to become bored.
There are signs with pricing of 5,000 won and 10,000 won. You can wear the greatest attire from head to toe and still only spend 100,000 won.
This flea market is the largest one I've ever been to. I'm used to visiting flea markets in other countries, but this is my first time in a region with so many secondhand shops. The atmosphere is quite different from that of a regular market.
Everything from thick antique dictionaries to apparel appears to be there.
Any man would find this shop full of military supplies fascinating. Yeongchunsa is well-known not only for selling Korean military goods but also for its goods related to the U.S. Army.
In front of us is a structure called "Dongmyo," which has a roof in the Traditional Korean style. Dongmyo was well-known as a shrine honoring the memory of the Chinese general Guan Yu. Formerly separated into East, West, South, and North, these regions are now collectively referred to as "East."
There's also a bike shop in front of Dongmyo that the gents should check out at least once.
Dongmyo Park's inside is peaceful, making it ideal for a stroll, in contrast to the bustling market.
The vendors were enjoying lunch in the bright sunshine. The availability of such restaurant delivery services is like an oasis for the vendors.
If I were a fashion blogger or YouTuber, I'd come here to shop and film a video. My attention is drawn to the unique and eye-catching garments.
We are getting close to Dongmyo Station now. A vendor and his two adorable puppies can be seen near the market's main entrance in Dongmyo.
Traditional Korean attire (hanbok) and other types of costumes are also for sale.
The new Alton bicycle(left) shop and a vintage Jongno bicycle(right) are also shown. Isn't it wonderful how well this blends the modern with the classical?
Here I am, at the entrance of Dongmyo's flea market. People congregate there because of its proximity to Dongmyo Station.
Lunchtime has arrived, so we're making our way to Sinseol-dong Station. This street also features an abundance of places to stop and dine.
Another great feature of Dongmyo Park is the alley that runs alongside the outside wall.
They greeted clients with dolls, clothing, shoes, and wallets of all shapes and sizes. Even though I have no intention of making a purchase, I like strolling through the store anyhow.
The sun had already set in the west. Street vendors start to pack up their goods for the day. By the end of our time at the Dongmyo Flea Market, we met a grandfather who turned out to be the most stylish person we encountered all day.
