Transformations of Jjajangmyeon Throughout Time
After the opening of Incheon port, Chinese restaurants began to spontaneously appear in the Chinatown area due to the establishment of the Qing Chinese settlement area.
As dock workers working in nearby Incheon Port frequently visited Chinese restaurants, they developed jajangmyeon, something cheap and easy to eat.
Unlike jakjangmyeon, which is mixed with Chinese miso, miyanjang, sweet caramel, is added to suit the taste of Koreans, and it is made to keep moisture properly. Immediately gaining explosive popularity, jajangmyeon has established itself as a representativeKoreanfood.

The Jajangmyeon Museum is the birthplace of jajangmyeon in Korea, and was built on two floors above the ground where the former Gonghwachun restaurant building was torn down.
The two-story brick building on the granite stonework is a modern cultural heritage site that shows the life of Chinese people. Gonghwachun, which initially developed and sold jajangmyeon, enjoyed a great boom as a representative Chinese restaurantinChinatown.
However, it was closed in 1983 due to the government's Chinese policy that restricted the use of property rights by Chinese.
