Considering warm days we are having this week, it is hard to believe we had a heavy snow last week! It’s spring and it’s good time to have our own MUKBANG TRIP to a local night market with a group of friends!

Maybe you are not familiar with the term “pocha” which is an abbreviation of pojangmacha meaning tented wagon. This type of eatry does not have to involve wagon in a lot of cases, though. The orange tents you see on the streets at night are the so-called “pocha” that serve tasty food and alcohol, typically famous one is soju. When you hit near Chilseong Market and Neunggeum Market after 6 in the afternoon, you will see arrays of orange pochas ready to serve seafood for customers! The tents at Chilseong Pocha Street serve mainly seafood in a variety of ways—grilled, steamed, seasoned, or raw.

*Come out through EXIT 1 and go straight, you will spot the pochas immediately.

3 Seomun Night Market 서문야시장
Mentioned in so many travel blogs and social media, Seomun Night Market is the one of the biggest night markets in Korea. Last year, 2 million people visited here, which makes 80,000 visitors per day! Recently, a soon-to-be new K-drama sensation “Four Men” filmed at the market. If you enjoy a bustling vibe of Korea’s market, you will love this place. It is an ultimately night-hour snacks goldmine where it is too difficult to pick a couple of foods that you want to try for the night! The market will soon change some of the stalls so that they have an updated menu for the new season!
