Dongdaemun Market or Tongdaemun (abbreviated DDM) is the large commercial district comprising traditional markets and shopping centers in Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea.[1] A popular shopping and tourist destination, it has been designated a Special Tourism Zone (관광특구) since 2002.

History

Dongdaemun Market opened in July 1905 in Yeji-dong (예지동 ), whose name means “a neighborhood for learning politeness”, so the market was originally called Baeugaejang (배우개장, “market for learning”). The market was also called Gwangjang Market (광장시장) as a company of the same name was set up as market management.[1]

The market was set in a closed structure until the Korean War, when the market was completely destroyed. The market slowly rebuilt over the years, and in 1959 a building was constructed and the market was revived. In 1998 and 1999, large shopping malls such as Geopyeong Freya, Migliore, and Doosan Tower were built in the district and the market was renovated with a modern atmosphere among the traditional market.
