Slow day at the market


A traditional market in Jochiwon, Sejong city, has hardly any visitors on Monday, despite that Lunar New Year, one of Korea’s biggest holidays is less than two weeks away. Prices of main staples of traditional markets such as hanwoo, or Korean beef, and hairtail have increased drastically in recent months, forcing consumers to turn their backs on local markets.
