    Guess what I’m doing in this picture!

    I’ve just signed an agreement to start using credit cards at the traditional markets in Mangwon Market, in Mapo-gu, and now I’m testing it!

    Starting on January 1, customers can use their credit cards and even transportation cards at traditional markets, including Mangwon Market in Mapo-gu, Gildong Market in Gangdong-gu, Sinwon Market in Gwanak-gu, Sinchang Market in Dobong-gu, Yeongcheon Market in Seodaemun-gu, and Jeongneung Market in Seongbuk-gu. Also, when you use a transportation card, you can get a transfer discount as well! If you just touch the bus card on the reader, the transaction goes through automatically. The fee is nominal, you can just buy a batch of spring onions, and when you use public transportation, you even get a discount!

    There were tons of people at Mangwon Market today. I will do my best to make it a huge hit!
