This alley is filled with books.... old books.... The shops are literally filled with books... Fiction.. non-fiction.. children.. autobiographies.. and much more. I was lucky to have found two books.. The Little Prince and Aesop Fables that has both English and Korean in it. A few dramas also filmed some of their scenes here. Getting to the street is a bit complicated. You can choose to take the taxi. Else below was how i got to the place. Directions: .. Toseong Station .. Exit 1 .. Walk straight .. Busan Bank will appear on your right at a junction. Turn right there. .. Walk past the bank and a church towards a traffic junction .. Cross the junction and turn right .. Walk straight till you see a traffic junction where pedestrians can also cross diagonally. .. Cross straight and go left .. Bosu Book Street is on the right on the immediate street

Ok we were in the area and passed by. The alley is very small and it does smell of old books! There’s a good looking cafe near the end so maybe you can find a good read and settle down. It is a small alley so won’t take u very long to walk through if that’s all you’re doing. There’s a couple of statues and info at the ends saying why it’s famous.

The alley smelt of old books. Even if you don't buy any books here, you can still enjoy the mood. In the middle of the alley, there is a book cafe named 우리글방(Uri-geulbang). It's a good place to take a rest. They sell small desserts, coffee, beverages, and also old books. And the shop is full of second-hand books, posters and LPs. Great atmosphere :-)

For those who keen on books and reading it can be a place to stay for the whole day. There are lots of very cozy book shops with unique or just vintage books, like miss Oki's shop(on the picture)
