Tongin market where the present and the future co-exist

The traditional coin made by Tongin Market itself is a fun activity that only exists here. Once you exchange your money as a traditional coin, you will receive a black plastic food tray.

After which, you may bring the tray around the market and purchase food with the coin exchanged. However, the traditional coin is only applicable at participating stores.
