A special pop-up store opened in two spots in Paris over the weekend showcasing Korea’s traditional desserts.

Five Korean dessert chefs presented traditional desserts made from sticky rice, nuts and fruits.

Seoul’s Vibrant Night Market

The Bamdokkaebi Night Markets are one of the most iconic events in Seoul that runs from spring to fall. We take a glimpse into the city’s vibrant night scene filled with food trucks selling all kinds of festival foods and arts and crafts booths.

Yeouido Hangang Riverside Park offers a place to relax for Seoul residents.
In one corner of the park, there is a group of young people. After making sure that everyone is present, they start drawing lots. They are the owners of food trucks that will participate in the Bamdokkaebi Night Market in Yeouido.

After deciding on the place to operate, 45 colorful food trucks enter the park one after another. The market opens at 6 p.m., but preparations begin as early as 3 p.m.

“We’re preparing early so that customers won’t have to wait long.”

The Bamdokkaebi Night Markets are found at Seoul’s four major tourist attractions, from April to October, on Friday and Saturday nights. Each market has a unique theme.

“We wanted to open night markets that were unique to Seoul. The idea was to create nighttime attractions in Seoul and to support startups run by young people.”

The night markets welcomed 3.3 million visitors last year alone. Due to their growing popularity, winning a concession to operate a food truck was a lot harder this year.
