On April 18, an outside market for University of Seoul (UOS) students was held at the square in front of the Cheonnong Hall. The market was opened with a pungmul performance, a korean folk music tradition that includes drumming and dancing, by Eolssigu, the UOS pungmul club. It was held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and different kinds of items, from clothes to books, were sold at 48 booths. Along with Noksaeksidae, a volunteer group, school clubs and each department of the university, those who registered beforehand, ran a selling booth. Each contributor took one booth and managed it individually.
Through this market, UOS hoped to spread a culture of sharing and making a green campus. Because of this, participation was all free and all items were sold at very cheap prices. At the market, the total number of items sold was 1,964 and the profit made was about 2,500,000 won in total. All the profit from the market will be used to operate school clubs and each department, and unsold items will be donated at the ‘Sharing place of UOS (Sidaein nanumteo)’ on the first floor of the Cheonnong Hall. There were also caricature and snack booths on one side of the market, which made the event more enjoyable. Thanks to this event, UOS students bought necessary items at cheap prices and got closer to more eco-friendly life.
