Explore the Noryangjin Fish Market and enjoy a delicious lunch (optional). 

Opened in 1927 on Uiju-ro Noryangjin Fish Market is the largest and most popular seaford market in Seoul.  The market handles about 50% of metropolitan Seoul's marine trade, about 250 to 300 tons of marine products every day.  The market recently moved into a modernized building so this is a wonderful opportunity to see the new market.
