Few days ago, I visited the old-fashioned Gwangjang Market locate in Jongno-gu, the central district of downtown Seoul. Gwangjang Market has over 110 years of history. The market is one of Korea's largest traditional market and continues to thrive as a popular tourist destination today. Moreover the market has long been famous for many non-stop shopping and exotic eating areas draw thousands of visitors to the market everyday. It was a cold weather, but the market streets were crowded with people ceaselessly. 
I sketched some colorful scenes in and outside the bustling Gwangjang Market and the 
surroundings in an exciting atmospheres.
북적거리는 종로의 새로운 관광명소...
110년 세월의 광장시장은 서울시민의 역사~
삶의 희로애락의 사연들을 쉴새없이 쏟아내며
발디딜 틈없이 바쁘게 돌아가는 먹거리 장터는
삶의 역동적인 풍물을 담는 좋은 스케치 장소입니다.
