Koreans go on Summer vacation NOT as long as the French, nor as a front-revenge to incoming American tourists, but because for a nation with distinct FOUR Seasons : mid-Summer heat is unbearable in the city and it is much efficient for all business and factories to take time off at the same time . thus major vacation migration begins last Week of July to smooth off by mid-August . destination was overtly onto the port city of Busan or Pusan at the South-Eastern tip of the Peninsula when the nation was developing latter half of 1900’s, but all three shores have become quite developed there are much more choices Post-Millennium with more affordable sites in South-East Asia .

as an industry that rides with changing Seasons : apparel district take on more meaning on vacation dates, for all Summer stock has to be cleared before, and Fall line to start when returning to re-open . so most buildings – of which the whole form the cluster of DongDaeMun apparel whole-sale market – close in synchronation, with some differing to take this time to refurbish and/or re-model its floors .

mentioned here are mostly whole-sale buildings, but also a few larger ones adhering to general consumers,
