Following the Korean War, refugees who fled to Busan set up stalls in order to make a living by selling smuggled or imported products, which developed into Gukje Market (gukje meaning “international” in Korean) of today.
Gukje Market is one of Korea’s largest markets. The market’s alleyways are lined with stalls selling diverse goods, particularly machinery tools, kitchenware, and clothing. To the market’s right is an alleyway lined with charity stores, and to the left is Kkangtong Market.
