This hall is open 24 hours a day to provide added convenience to visitors of Dongdaemun Market, the town that never sleeps. 

The Dongdaemun History & Culture Park is the newest park in downtown Seoul. The park gives a glimpse of how the area was once used as a military training ground during the Joseon dynasty. The park seamlessly extends onto the rooftop of DDP, making it a truly unique park in Korea.
