What is an Oraegage?

We would like to introduce selected oraegagaes located throughout the city of Seoul.
An oraegage is a kind of store that has maintained its reputation for generations while preserving the heart and stories unique to the city.
The term oraegage means to hope for an old store to continue on its business for years to come.

Introduction Introduction

All oraegage content was selected
by the Seoul Metropolitan Government
to provide a unique tourism experience
in Seoul with the appeal and
stories embedded in old stores hidden
throughout the city.

Representative of traditional Korean culture,
the Hands-on Natural Dyeing invites participants
to dye different cloths and fabrics using dyes
composed of natural ingredients, rather than
chemical-based dyes.

You can experience the process of dyeing
using a special plant called
"Jjok"(persicaria tinctoria),
sometimes referred to as Indigo,
during the workshop, which is led
by a third-generation craftsman
who has inherited this unique line of natural dyeing.

      Introduction Introduction

      Another oraegage theme of Seoul is
      the traditional Hands-on Knots provided by
      a family business preserved for four generations.
      Director Shim Young-mi, actively transmitting
      the traditional function of knotting
      to younger generations, acquired the skill
      from her father-in-law, who is said to
      have acquired it himself from his aunt.
      She apparently had worked in knotting at one of
      the palace courts during the Joseon Dynasty.
      Together with his daughter-in-law,
      they collectively dedicate themselves
      to the reproduction and restoration of
      various museum artifacts,
      in addition of operating the workshop.

      Since long ago, knots have been used to
      connect objects together in everyday life.
      The traditional knots of Korea have been developed
      into crafts to express the beauty of Korea
      as they have been evolved to become incorporated
      into the decoration of norigaes, or pouches.

      It’s a special experience for everyone as participants
      can create something symbolic of Korean beauty
      with their own hands through various workshops.
      Workshop themes involve the making of bracelets,
      necklaces, cellphone straps, and more,
      through the use of the traditional knotting technique.

          Tongin MarketTongin Market
          Yeopjeon Dosirak Workshop

          Introduction Introduction

          Built in 1941 during the Japanese Occupation and
          currently standing as one of Seochon’s biggest attractions,
          Tongin Market is a traditional market
          with more than 70 years of history.
          Due to the settlement of refugees and migrants following
          the Korean War, there was a rapid increase in
          Seochon’s population, leading to the formation of
          stores around the area, which gradually transformed
          to resemble that of a market.

          The Yeopjeon Dosirak Workshop
          (dosirak meaning “lunch box” or “packed meal”)
          at Tongin Market allows participants to pick and
          eat market food with yeopjeon, brass coins used as
          currency during the late Joseon Dynasty.
          This experiential program has become a major tourist
          attraction in Seoul among foreign tourists,
          as well as young people.
          If you exchange money for yeopjeon at a rate of
          500 won per coin, you receive a black plastic plate,
          which you can carry around the market and use to buy food.
          Some of the more popular snack foods include
          oil tteokbokki (fried rice cakes), fried dumplings,
          and bindaetteeok (mung bean pancakes).

              Light Making Class

              Introduction Introduction

              The word Euljiro refers to a road that spans
              from the front of Seoul City Hall
              to the Dongdaemun History and Culture Park.
              To the extent of the saying,
              ”If you take a drawing to Euljiro,
              even a tank can be made,"
              Euljiro is the embodiment of the history
              of Korean manufacturing itself located in
              the heart of the city.

              Packed with shopping districts for tools
              and lighting equipment,
              it was regarded as the birthplace of creation.

              Euljiro has now been reborn as a trendy
              modern cultural area that pursues a newtro
              (a combination of the words “new” and “retro”) theme.

              Euljiro's lighting street was the hub for
              materials used for interior design during the
              1970s and 1980s.
              Currently, the number of millennials visiting
              the lighting street has seen a dramatic increase
              due to the Korean newtro craze.

              Euljiro is also experiencing a rebirth as a cultural
              and artistic zone where original lighting-based artwork
              and other works of young artists and designers
              are created utilizing various materials.
              In particular, as a part of revitalizing Euljiro,
              young artists are working together and operating
              special experiential programs where you can make
              personalized lighting products.

                  Introduction Introduction

                  Once known for its old factory complex and shoe factory, Seongsu-dong is now back on the scene with brand new cafes, bakeries, restaurants, and cultural complexes. Restaurants and cafes are being built between the automobile repair shop, printing plant, and handmade shoe factory.

                  As Seongsu-dong became the hub of the newtro trend, fashion brand companies began relocating their headquarters to Seongsu-dong or opened experiential hands-on stores.

                  In particular, Amore Seongsu, created by the brand, Amorepacific, was built to house as many as 2,300 kinds of products from 30 different brands for the customers to freely experience for themselves. All the products are available for use with a beautiful outdoor garden as the backdrop. There is also an O'sulloc Café located on the second floor. All guests receive free samples, discount coupons, and more, during their visit.
