Busan Haeundae Pojangmacha Zone Suspends Operations

The Seaside Pojangmacha That Have Been At A Corner Of Haeundae Beach in Busan For 20 Years Will Disappear

Haeundae food stalls began selling seafood in the early 1960s and took the form of food stalls in the 1970s. They have received a series of complaints since 2021 for being illegal facilities.

The merchants have decided to voluntarily remove the stores by end of this month.

Haeundae District officier said that if the merchants do not voluntarily vacate the stores by the end of this month, they plan to proceed with administrative procedures such as attaching a warning letter and forced removal in February next month. After demolition, it will be used as a convenience facility for citizens such as a parking lot.
