Really nice shopping street especially at night time when the shops are fully open and talented performers lined the street showing off their dance moves and singing talent. Great place to shop for apparels and accessories.

A wide plethora of food options ranging from fusion to authentic korean food. Do not expect any luxury shopping but a great place to look for affordable items to purchase, especially when it comes to korean snacks and smaller accessories

We came in a Friday night for dinner then we strolled and soaked up the local vibes. There were lots of street performers: singing, K-pop dancing, etc. Lots of street food and pop up vendors. Enjoy the street culture.

Carefree enthusiasm is everywhere in this energetic
neighborhood centered on Hongik University, Korea’s
top art school. From its assortment of murals to the
occasional amateur street performances, creativity and
expression make up the wild and beating heart of
vibrant Hongdae. At the Free and Hope Market (weekends
at the Hongdae Children’s Playground) you'll find one
of Seoul’s most popular handmade and creative markets
