The Chinatown in Incheon is the only official one in Korea. It was originally created in 1884 as a free trade zone for the Qing Dynasty was Korea's largest Chinatown before the Chinese were forced out of South Korea in the 1960s and 1970s by the administration of Park Chung-hee. The government of Incheon Metropolitan City decided to spend US $6.2 million to revitalize and recreate its Chinatown in 2002; however, the new Chinatown has been criticized for being simply a Chinese-themed tourist trap run by and for Koreans, despite the original intentions of the government to use it to draw in Chinese tourists.
