Korean food culture wouldn’t be what it is today without street food.

If you’ve ever been to a night market in Seoul, you’d understand the joy of weaving through the endless stretch of food stalls and mingling with the hungry crowd.

Tteokbokki and cheese skewers? Hotteok with nuts and honey? Bulgogi cup-bup? Yes, yes, and yes.

Another food truck street at Gangnam’s Han River will be rolled out this year, in addition to the upcoming Namdaemun night attraction.

This “food truck street project” has been implemented since 2017 in a bid to attract more tourists and visitors to different parts of Seoul.

Other than receiving education and state funding, food truck owners can also gain greater exposure and experience. The majority of food trucks are also run by young people, who rely on such opportunities and events as platforms for entrepreneurial growth.
