To be fair, it's possible that more is open on a regular weekend. When we got there, shops were open and the tourist information people were out, so I think we got a pretty good picture of what Namdaemun has to offer, which is not much. I found it overpriced and very little variety. Lots of furs, wallets and kitchen things. No one would bargain with me and when, for example, the wallets I was looking for were too expensive and I asked if they had any wallets for 15,000won I was shooed out of the store.
Overall, Namdaemun gets a big thumbs down from me.
