When Japan abolished the Korean monarchy in 1910, the palace tteok makers were sacked, so they opened small shops just north of Tapgol Park and sold their tteok to the public. Some of the shops are still run by their descendants. White, cupcake tteok have a fermented flavour, while others are flavoured with nuts and dried fruits.
