Vendors insist the Noryangjin fish market a cultural landmark should be left untouched

TO GO WITH: SKorea-economy-market-fish, FEATURE by Hwang Sung-Hee A photo taken on February 4, 2016 shows a general view of the Noryangjin fish market in Seoul. Vendors at Seoul's oldest and largest fish market -- a city landmark and tourist hot-spot -- are fighting a move to a futuristic, half-billion-dollar facility because they prefer the sprawling, run-down site they have called home for 45 years. The dispute mirrors others in the vibrant South Korean capital, where design upgrades of some traditional locations and neighbourhoods are being fiercely resisted. The 66,000 square-meter market has been operating 24/7 since South Korea lifted a nighttime curfew in 1982, and serves 30,000 customers a day. AFP PHOTO / Ed Jones / AFP / ED JONES
