filipino market

Go support some fellow expats at the Filipino market

It's a little disheartening to read "Seoul’s Filipino market to be cut in half" because of 'complaints from local residents'. So says the Joongang Daily:

On Filipinos, markets, and forced relocations

Source: my previous post on the Filipino Market.

Destination: Filipino Market (Hyehwa)

After recently hearing of a Filipino Market within the boundaries of Seoul, I decided it was worth a visit. One of Korea's sizable minorities, one Korea Times article claims there to be almost 46,000 Filipinos in Korea - often doing the jobs in the '3 D's' category (dirty, dangerous, or difficult). The market nearby the Hyehwa Catholic Church gives them to share information, give or get assistance, and purchase a taste of home. As a fellow foreigner in Korea, I found myself sharing in their community, albeit still as an outsider of sorts.
