Korea's first pop-up store built with shipping containers,
Common Ground is approximately 5,300 square meters in scale, made up of 200 large containers and is capable of transforming into different structures or moving into different places. Mega-sized mainstream brands are hard to spot in Common Ground. Instead, new and trendy mid-sized shops by up-and-coming new designers and editorial shops can be found here.
On the central square of the ground market, a weekend market is held with different themes. In addition, various events such as exhibitions and performances continue to entertain shoppers while playing its role as a cultural space. On the third floor terrace, famous restaurants sprawl along the sides of the alley. If you feel like having a light snack, you can also pop down to the food trucks on the market ground that offers an exotic gastronomic dining experience.
