The economic invasion of Imperial Japan into Korea following the coerced signing of the Eulsa Treaty led to the domination of the Namdaemun Market by Japanese investors. The effort to revive “economic sovereignty” in the followed period resulted in the establishment of Gwangjang Market for which Kim Jong-han and three other promotors invested land and 100,000 won.
Their initial effort to open a market at at a site between Gwanggyo and Janggyo (today’s Cheonggyecheon 3(sam)-ga and 4(sa)-ga) failed due to the Great Flood of 1904. A negotiation with Hanseongbu, the capital administration, resulted in deciding the current location as the new marketplace. The name of the market, Gwangjang, was made by combing “gwang” and “jang” each from the two bridge names, Gwanggyo and Janggyo, as it was between the two bridges.
