Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The reason I gave it five stars is because I have never seen anything like this market before! Dried sea foods dominate and I mean in quantities that you would not believe unless you actually see it! It is a bit off to the beaten path and so you don't see tourists and spectators; most everyone is here to buy something!

This place is just a short walk from the Seoul Design Plaza and the Dongdeamun Cultural Park and its shopping district, and also part of the HopOn HopOff bus route.

Its a great place to buy dried seafood, fermented goods, Korean delicacies and other dry foodstuffs. The shop owners, mostly elderly Korean ladies are very friendly and would give excellent prices or even samplings. Worth a visit, and its not crowded and opens all day long....

There're varieties of seaweeds, dried seafood and most important of all, Korean ginseng, with better deals. Good experience overall.

Dried seafoods are majorities. And this is not well-known to tourists. So, mostly not crowded.
But, it also has various street foods and other products.
Good place for tourists, too.

Found this place by change en route to N Seoul Tower.
Really interesting. Lots and lots of dried seafood product and we saw some delicious kimci also. Must be yummy.
Since we cook most of our meals we made a note to come here first and stock up should we come back to Seoul soon.

I had worked in the area for over 12 years and had walked by the market on Euljiro many, many times. Back for a visit i decided to walk thru the market, it was interesting...but I had to find my way out after about 10-15 minutes. The dried fish creates dust with a strong odor. It played havoc with my nose, and after leaving the odor stayed with me for hours. Sadly, I will never go back. It is an interesting place for sure but if you have a sensitive nose, be cautious.

There are other wonderful markets in Seoul to visit, Namdaemun, Insadong, and Noryongjin Fish market for example.

There are many stalls selling dry food. A lot of locals shop at this market as well. Most of the sellers cant speak English. So there will be a lot of pointing and translating (if you have internet).
Worth visiting to see how its like to visit a local market.
