Gwangju to Cultivate 3 Neighboring Markets near Songjeong Station into Culture and Tourism Themed Markets


The city of Gwangju will reportedly cultivate three neighboring markets located close to the Gwangju Songjeong station into representative culture and tourism markets upon the opening of the Honam KTX.

The city of Gwangju will host a Songjeong Market Concert, showcasing a variety of cultural performances, concerts and folk events on every Saturday at 2 p.m. as a means to attract a greater number of visitors and tourists to the market.

Songjeong Daily Market, Songjeong Five Day Market and a Yeokjeon (역전) Daily market will be the other markets targeted for transformation into cultural tourism areas in time for the opening of the Honam KTX.

The respective markets have been running different types of cultural programs, such as Korean traditional wedding ceremonies for foreign laborers in Korea and street performances in and outside the market.
