Spot the Kimchi Pots

Previously, Gamcheon was a slum village in Busan, but instead redevelopment they’ve opted preservation and rejuvenation. Nowadays it’s a creative community where art works are seen everywhere, and where imaginative small shops thrive. I love this concept of urban revitalization boosting cultural content rather than erasing it.

I’m pretty sure there are plenty of searchable lovely pictures of this village out there minus the kimchi pots. And so here are the kimchi pots I’ve spotted in my walkabout.
