Owner description: This is the nexus of Seoul’s youth and indie culture. Funky boutiques, avant-garde galleries, and great nightclubs are this neighborhood’s mainstay. Come here for a fascinating look at the other side of traditionally conservative Korean culture.

Very vibrant place with surprises at most corners, away from Main Street. Chanced upon the hello kitty cafe and had a coffee break there. Not that I fancy the cat but rather its for my boasting to the fanatics that i had been there.Lots of shops selling handphone covers, ear plugs and accessories.

Nice shoe shops as well but the largest size they carry is 250. I am a size 9 and judging by how tight the shoes felt, 250 should be a 8 only.

Roadside stalls are put up in the late afternoon. This is also the area where all the hop hop clubs are located: Nb1 and nb2, cocoon etc.

Bars, clubs, places to eat, places to shop, weekends might be the best for you to come because the street performers are amazing

We went on a Sunday to look for the Sunday flea market near the university. Couldn't find our way and didn't make it on time. Randomly went to a 2nd floor restaurant call Crazydduk World along the streets nearer to the subway, its really a cheap bargain. We ordered the black sauce, small one, for 3 person sharing. Its filling and nice too! Whole jar of pineapple/plum yogurt at krw 2000.
There's nice shopping around there! The whole building of Hello Kitty cafe and the transparent karaoke house were wonders for us!
Randomly went to a nice cafe call Cafe J*K at 2nd level (coz we got lost). Its pretty from the door front to the cafe! Ask for tourist menu in Eng. The Honey toast is super nice! Nice latte too!!!

If you like to party or see people as you wander down streets, this is the place to be. You can get just about any kind of food you would ever want, any kind of beer, alcohol and snacks that you could think of and the best part is that the bars don't close so you can stay out as long as you want without having to worry about last call. This would be the place to go for a last night on the town or meeting with old friends for a cold brew, just whatever you need, this place has it.

DongHae is the party place of Seoul. There are a number of specialty clothing shops as well as restaurants in the area. It is usually alive early evening up the early morning.
