Having seen the Gwangjang Market written up many places as somewhere you had to visit in Seoul, my family went for dinner. We were very disappointed as it was much more intimidating than expected. We had already been to many places to eat in Seoul and to various markets. Gwangjang was among the most frenetic, crowded and dirty of them. We were not inspired to eat there. Instead, we were more comfortable with the street food in Myeongdong. I'm sure this is an instance of a difference in Western and Asian sensibilities, but I feel that Western tourists should be made aware that Gwangjang is not like anything you would be used to in the West.
