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.
Great place to enjoy street performance from young generation who's love on K-POP dacing. This place is one of the best shopping district in Seoul. Also In the night time you also can enjoy with many nightclub that located on this area.
Since there is a university located this is obviously a place for young crowd. Lot of discounted shops but with an intension of selling stuff which students require such as mobile covers, stationery, bags, purses, t shirts, tops, etc Many restaurants and bars also.
The food here is relatively cheaper compared to other touristy areas. The are rows of clothing shops to choose from. Once light falls, the area is crowded with street performers and you will find boy-bands, girl-bands, soloist, dancers etc taking up every space they can...More
My husband and I enjoy street performances very much. Personally Im not a fan of Kpop, but it was impossible for someone to not enjoy the street performances here. This is the most happening street that I've ever been to in Seoul and Jeju.
Visited on a Sunday and it was really vibrant and lively. Lots of teenagers, a lot of restaurants, cafes, shopping as well. There is the hongdae hope Market and lots of stalls set up and you can shop till you drop. There is also theme...More
One of my favorite places to visit, it is buzzing and vibrant with life. Go on weekend especially where young students and artists busk and perform on the streets. All the shops are here too, buy everything from fiery korean instant ramen to delectable cookies...More
Went to hongik to check out the street performances, there were a lot of students dancing and singing. Not too bad except that the street was quite narrow so it’s hard to check out the performances when it is very crowded
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
drawing consistent crowds. At Hongdae, there’s never a shortage of things to do and see; food and drink options are nearly endless as are shops and noraebang (karaoke) rooms. Hongdae is also one of Seoul’s top party and club scenes catering to a younger demographic; if a packed club isn’t your scene, you'll also find a range of music venues and bars offering live music in all genres. Although Hongdae has lost much of its unique appeal and undergone rapid commercialization in recent years, be sure to explore Hongdae’s edges in areas such as Sangsu-dong and Yeonnam-dong where Hongdae’s fiercely independent streak still runs freely.
