  • Culture & Tourism news SMG 1680

    The City of Seoul is opening three markets at the Oil Tank Culture Park’s T0 Culture Plaza on Saturday, July 21. The markets include the ‘Modu Market,’ changing everyday life for the world, animals, and humans, the Seoul Bamdokkaebi Night Market’s ‘Forest Picnic Market,’ and the Sangam Social Box Festival’s ‘B-SIDE Market.’

    < ① Modu Market- changing everyday life for humans, animals, and the world >
    At ‘Modu Market,’ you can visit various merchant booths, ranging from the ‘Repair Hospital’ that fixes your items, a ‘Food Market’ selling healthy dishes and fresh vegetables, and the Mapo mothers’ free market for moms to share resources ‘MaMaPeu.’ There will also be many other things to experience, including a refreshing African music ‘Djembecola’ performance and a fine cuisine educational experience ‘5 Senses 5 Colors Salad Tour’ for kids.

    < ② Seoul Bamdokkaebi Night Market @ Oil Tank Culture Park’s ‘Forest Picnic Market’ >
    The Bamdokkaebi Night Market is opening up for the second half of the year 2018, starting July 21, offering Seoul’s great nightscapes, plenty of food trucks with good eats, and handmade crafts from artists. Seoul Bamdokkaebi Night Market @ Oil Tank Culture Park will be held from 16:00 – 21:00 every Saturday and Sunday starting from October 28.

    Capturing the concept of enjoying a picnic in a forest, spend a leisurely afternoon in nature while enjoying performances and eating food together with your family on the grass at the Oil Tank Culture Park. Reborn as an eco-friendly culture park created through urban renewal, they are holding a campaign that matches with the Oil Tank Culture Park’s management directions by not using single-use products, and instead using environmentally friendly dishes and having people wash their own dishes.

    < ③ Sangam Social Box Festival ‘B-SIDE Market’ >
    ‘B-SIDE Market’ makes new ideas and objects, going through a process of making your own piece that expresses your own values and meanings, finding hidden worth from in, and expressing things you wanted to, but had not been able to say before. ‘B-SIDE,’ meaning the back of a record, will be held at Sangam Social Box and Oil Tank Culture Park grounds on Saturday, July 21 from 16:00 – 23:00.
