One of the must visit places in Seoul to experience the night life. Due to the close proximity to Hongik University, the place is teeming with teenagers and has a very vibrant atmosphere; choices for street food are abundant.

Load of restaurants and street vendors for food and selling stuff. This place is so great for shopping especially clothes. Open around 6pm to midnight and very convenient as it's not too far from underground.

Great area to spend the day shopping and eating. Items are priced for the student market it serves. Seems like many students part-time in these boutique shops around the area. Most can speak some sprinkling of English, Chinese and even Japanese.

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
