Those who live with the sea resemble the sea
Jumunjin port is the largest port on the east coast of Korea, and the sea wall is 1km long. Its size is enough for 500 boats to be docked. The coastal waters near Jumunjin are the locations where the Korean Wave and turbulent flow meet, so the water is deep and there are many species of fish.
The Jumunjin port is filled with fresh fish caught every morning and it is always crowded with auctioneers and tourists seeking for good sales. The rough, but energetic port of the daily life stimulates our five senses which are cloaked. It seems that living with the sea comforts the spirit of life of those who resemble the sea.
You can feel the mood of the fishing village also in the Jumunjin fish market which is located near the Jumunjin port. A large whale sculpture is the eye-catching entrance, if you pass the entrance and go into the market, you can see lots of food from the fresh seafood to the dried fish. Jumunjin Fish Market, which has a history of 80 years since 1936, is still loved as a essential course of traveling Jumunjin.
There is a time to rest even in busy daily life. Fishing boat rests as it is anchored, shifted by gentle waves. Fishermen quietly prepare their nets for their sail tomorrow. Let's rest for a moment. It is the wisdom taught by Jumunjin port.
