1,000 Won Restaurant’ and its Food-sharing Event Continues in Gwangju


The ‘1,000 Won Restaurant’, which used to be operated by the late Kim Seon-ja and sold full meals for 1,000 won to those in need, will remain in operation after her passing last month.

Daein Traditional Market in Gwangju and its Merchants’ Association announced that individual donations made to the restaurant have increased by 20 percent since Ms. Kim’s passing.

Donations include rice, vegetables, and meat and the daily average number of guests to the restaurant marks 70 to 80 a day.

Ms. Kim opened up the restaurant in 2010 and sold a full table meal set for visitors in need at 1,000 won. After suffering from a colorectal cancer, she passed away last month.

Meanwhile, the local merchants’ association at Daein Traditional Market has called for group donations and systematical help from municipal government in Gwangju.
