I got a chance to work in DGFEZ(Daegu Gyeongbuk Free Economic Zone 대구경북경제자유구역청) again, and we headed to Seomun Market, one of the most interesting places in Daegu. I got to work with Matt, which is always a blast.
Seomun Market is the largest Korean traditional market in Daegu, South Korea, containing more than 4,000 shops. Seomun Market is particularly known as a source for textiles and sewing services, a key ingredient of Daegu’s fashion industry. The name “Seomun” means “west gate,” and refers to the location of the market just outside the old west gate of Daegu Fortress, demolished in the early 1900’s. It is also one of the country’s oldest markets, dating to a 5-day market held in the area in the late Joseon Dynasty. In the final years of Joseon, Seomun market was one of the country’s three largest markets. [Wiki]
