There was, in fact, a winter night market at the end of 2021. Unfortunately, there were no food trucks open because of the coronavirus. The Banpo Han River Moonlight Night Market is full of food trucks selling all sorts of food and drinks so people that were suffocated from social distancing the last two years are excited to go to the night market! It has already gathered a huge crowd, a crowd so bigger than the officials expected, leading to the short break at the beginning of September. Stop by one if you're in Korea!
