2017 Seoul Bamdokkaebi Night Market

The Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) expanded the operation of the ‘Seoul Bamdokkaebi Night Market’ to five locations and will run from March 24 to October 29, 2047. The Seoul Bamdokkaebi Night Market are held in the five locations including the two existing locations at ① Yeouido Hangang Park and ② Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP), which were highly popular in 2016, as well as the three new locations at ③ Banpo Hangang Park, ④ Cheonggyecheon Stream, and ⑤ Cheonggye Plaza Seasonal Market (May opening).

Each location will have different themes but will hold under one general theme of ‘Five Colors, Five Sentiments’ and each location will host unique magic shows and acoustic performances throughout the events to entertain residents and tourists.

Food trucks are set to offer a variety of menus. There will be trucks that were highly popular in the 2016 Bamdokkaebi Night Market and new ones eager to present their creative menus in 2017. Handmade products include necklaces, brooches, and other accessories and props for interior decoration that contain the artists’ philosophy and hard work.
