“Very happening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Went on a Sunday. It was full of activity. Games stalls, food stalls and lots of shopping. Books stalls too. And full of people, locals and tourists. Worth visiting

“omo omo!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

Hongdae? Omg! It's just fabulous! I love it! If you're still thinking where to stay or where to go in Seoul, please don't forget to go to Hongdae. You'll love it, trust me! I was worried when I chose to stay at a guesthose located at Hongdae cause it's not that popular when compared to Myeongdong & Dongdaemun. But my worries were just too much. Hongdae is just too good to worry. It has everything you want- shopping, restaurants, clubs, artistic museum,stylish people watching, Nanta show, etc. Name it and you get it! Love it!

“University Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

Laid back , young , full of energy, Hondae is laden with lots of eating choices and cute boutiques to fancy the shopping hunger of the ladies! A bit hard to find at first , but just follow the young crowd and you eventually get there !

“Funky”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

We went on a Sunday to see the craft jewelry being sold by the artisans themselves. There were a few young rappers performing at the children's park very very close to Hongik University
