Sewoon Plaza [세운상가], also known as Makercity Sewoon/Sewoon Sangga/Sewoon Arcade/세운전자상가, is a building that is well-known for its electrical shops. Established in 1968 as Korea’s first electronics market, it has since reinvented itself as a place for young ‘makers’ and creative businesses to hone their craft. It also boasts an impressive rooftop with sweeping views of the vicinity.

The building is located in Seoul’s neighborhood Jangsa [Jangsa-dong/장사동] — under the administration of Jongno- ga-dong/Jongno 1(il).2(i).3(sam).4(sa) [종로1.2.3.4가동] — in the Jongno District [Jongno-gu/종로구]. It sits just opposite Jongmyo Shrine [종묘] and is in walking distance to Cheonggyecheon Stream [청계천]; in fact, Sewoon Bridge/Sewoongyo [세운교] leads directly to the building’s back entrance.
