100 TOURIST SPOTS IN KOREA [Seoul] A Hangout for the Youth: Hongik University (Hongdae) Street

17 Nov 2022

The streets of Hongdae are lined with shops, designer brand ateliers, quirky collections, bookstores, galleries, cafés, and restaurants. It is a never-ending festival of buskers and performers who make their home in streets famous for murals, clubs, and other themes. Visitors in Hongdae are never tourists; they are a part of the neighborhood’s artistic community and its grand outdoor market of culture. Is it any wonder that many of Korea’s art markets have their roots in Hongdae? Nowhere else in Korea can be this constantly charming with its powerful youth and trends pulsating with senses and dynamism. Daytime is for quirky shops, but when the sun comes down, clubs and bars light up to welcome the youth.

Don’t Miss
Yeonnam-dong is a neighborhood located near Donggyo-dong Samgeori from Exit 3 of Hongik University Station. It was once a haven of 24/7 restaurants catering to taxi drivers, but today’s Yeonnam-dong is a vibrant neighborhood of colorful shops, cafés, and restaurants. Culinary cosmopolitans will rejoice in many of the neighborhood’s restaurants serving the finest from every corner of the world. They bloom like flowers along the Gyeongui Line Forest Park, also known as “Yeontral Park.”

How to Get There
Hongik University Main Gate can be reached in 7–8 min on foot from Exit 9 of Hongik University Station, Seoul Subway Line 2, AREX, and Gyeongui–Jungang Line.
