President Moon Jae-in visited Namdaemun Market in Seoul on Wednesday to encourage merchants affected by the coronavirus outbreak.
The market is one of the biggest outdoor markets in Korea and popular among tourists and locals alike, but has seen a drop in business due to the outbreak.
Moon took the opportunity to buy local food products. He also had lunch with about a half-dozen merchants there and vowed to support them.
