The Dongdaemun History and Culture Park has recently been created on the site of the Seoul Fortress wall and Hadomateo military camp which lies adjacent. An outdoor stage hosts regular concerts and dance performances within the market, and its streets are illuminated with bright neon lights once the sun goes down. Unlike most markets which operate during regular daytime hours, the Dongdaemun Market extends through the night and into the early morning with some shops are open 24 hours, allowing wholesale clients to shop and restock outside of their business hours.
