Seoul’s representative night event, Seoul Bamdokkaebi Night Market returns March 24. This year, the market will be operating on Friday and Saturday evenings until October 29 in four locations, including Dongdaemun Design Plaza, Banpo Hangang Park, Yeouido Hangang Park, and Cheonggyecheon Stream.

Seoul Bamdokkaebi Night Market is like a goblin’s trick, appearing quickly at night only to disappear in the morning. Each venue has its own unique concept, making a visit to all four venues fun.

More than anything, the charm of the market comes from the many things to see and eat! The markets are dotted with all kinds of performances, from magic shows to DJ concerts. The food trucks provide plenty of choices for delicious late-night snacks at a price that won’t break the bank. Seoul Bamdokkaebi Night Market is the perfect opportunity to take in the beautiful nightscape of Seoul.
