The night market, which was originally held every summer, was canceled for the last two years due to the pandemic. Finally, after 2 long years, the Summer Night Market is back! The infamous Dokkaebi Night Market is now back with a new name, "Han River Moonlight Night Market". Seoulites and even Koreans and foreigners from all over are excited about the comeback of one of Seoul's summer highlight events. Let's see if the market is as iridescent as it sounds, shall we?

The Seoul Metropolitan Government decided to temporarily hold the night market schedule for the first week of September and also only open on Saturdays and Sundays. At the end of October, the night market will be relocated to Yeouido Han River Park to welcome a larger crowd. 

Back when the Bam Dokkaebi Night Market was still hosted, it was very popular and crowded. You could see the beautiful view of the Han River and Banpo Rainbow Bridge while eating your night market eats!

There was, in fact, a winter night market at the end of 2021. Unfortunately, there were no food trucks open because of the coronavirus. The Banpo Han River Moonlight Night Market is full of food trucks selling all sorts of food and drinks so people that were suffocated from social distancing the last two years are excited to go to the night market! It has already gathered a huge crowd, a crowd so bigger than the officials expected, leading to the short break at the beginning of September. Stop by one if you're in Korea!


We hope that you can enjoy a snack by the Han River at the Banpo Han River Moonlight Night Market!
