Jungrim-dong(중림동) Tour 
 
Sujeong will be leading this tour where we will discover the hidden and non-touristic area of Jungrim-dong.  Jungrim-dong is a neighborhood of Seoul with an important history,  largely unknown to Koreans and overseas visitors alike. 
 
It is home to some of Korea's most iconic novels and delicious local dishes, hidden from the public eye. You can feel the 1970's atmosphere while you are walking along the small alleys.
 
The first fish market of Joseon created in this area, and the fish market still opens everyday at 3:00 in the morning.
From an over 100 year old cathedral (Yakhyeon Catholic Church) to  Korea's first residential complex (Saint. Joseph Apt.), Jungrim-dong will offer you lots to discover.
 
A special kind of Sesame oil is sold here and we can watch them extract the oil from the seeds.   This particular type of sesame oil is of a very good quality.  It costs about 20,000 won but you will need cash if you want to purchase it.
