Shinhwa Broadcast – Chuncheon Pungmul Market 풍물시장
Shinhwa Broadcast is one of the very popular variety shows among youngsters lately. They visited 풍물시장 during their MT ep which I thought was really a nice and interesting place to visit during your Korea trip. It’s a very localize market where you get lots of exposure of different experiences. — so worth a visit!
Still can’t remember anything from Shinbang on Pungmul Market? I have done a screen cap for you to get some memory back all the way to EP15 (it’s already into EP53!)
We had found the place, and managed to eat the Tadpole noodle too. So, joined me right here and you will soon get to know more about it! 🙂
You can take ITX to NamChuncheon towards Gyeongchun direction (Alternative to save money, you can just take the normal line to NamChuncheon which is much slower since there’s more stops in between). ITX is available from Wangsimni (if you are at Green Line), Cheongnyangni (Dark Blue Line), Sangbong (Line 7)…. ^^ It is quite a long journey, we bought some snacks from Lotte Mart the night before for this long long day hehe.
There’s about 140 interesting stores in Pungmul Market. Basically, this local market sell everything and anything right beside each stall. You can see, someone selling fishes right beside someone who is selling pot hehe!!. In a way, I thought this is very very interesting. I enjoyed visiting market because is like, something what tourist usually won’t add into their itinerary. But its something local and surprisingly interesting too. I must really thanks to Shinbang that make us explore new places… 🙂 You can do your grocery shopping here like, we actually bought dinner, fruits and biscuits back. And if you love the fashion hehe, you might even get some ‘ahjuma pant’ too hehehe. It’s actually very comfortable. The seller even told us, your mom will love it. haha 😛
Something important to take note —- Pungmul Market only opens on the 2s and 7s. Which means only on 2/7/12/17/22/27 of each month, of cos, other than this date, some stalls still open but is quite pointless to visit because is almost empty :p
The Highlight of my Pungmul Market Trip. The Stall that Shinhwa had their 올챙이 국수!
This dish is popular here (according to Shinbang haha!) So I thought we shld give it a try hehe. 올챙이 국수/ Tadpole Noodle/ 蝌蚪麵條 – They called it tadpole noodle because of the shape of the noodle. But its actually made of dried corn flour! 🙂
E-mu was really nice, sharing with us that Eric was in punishment that why he worn skirt haha. And pointed to us that the stall (i have photo after this hehe), he tried the heel on hahahahaa!!! She also shared with the rest of her customers that we get to know here because of Shinhwa Broadcast. haha. She is also very pretty and cute too! And not forgetting, she give us free drink haha! 🙂
If you had extra time, do go on some market trip! 🙂 And this could be one of it too! hehe 🙂
