Snapping off in Seomun Market (서문시장)

Posted in Monday Market (Theme), Photo diary, Quintesentially Korean by 노강호 on May 7, 2011

It was Children’s Day and downtown would have simply been too crowded so I headed off to Daegu’s largest market, Seo -Mun (West Gate). It is enormous! The photos are dated April but were in fact taken on May 5th.

I found these extremely entertaining. Try explaining ‘tacky’ to a Korean!
