A breeze Saturday night during autumn. The street food cost 3000won on average. Similar to other country night market. Worth the visit

A bit disappointed to me as this place was too crowded and too touristic as well! It was a good tourist spot to wander around but nothing much to explore nor to enjoy to me.

This is a cool area, famous for their movie theaters and Hollywood style hand prints of famous international movie stars. Also has great traditional Korean street food.

Eclectic shops and street foods. Buy an electric mini fan here if you don’t have one. Best $6 investment.
