Hongdae is a hot place in Seoul. It is often represented by youth, romantic arts, underground culture, and the streets of freedom, as it is a mixture of different genres of culture ranging from indie music as well as painting and design.
It is famous for its exotic cafes, small galleries and art galleries, as well as its distinctive prop shops, fashion shops, live cafes, clubs and art markets, as well as various taste shops.
At one time, many publishers were located, so literary people frequented the area, but such an atmosphere has died down due to Paju’s publishing complex.
There were a lot of art-related schools in anticipation of Hongik University’s reputation for producing many talented artists, but the mood has been dampened recently. Nevertheless, Hongdae is still young, hot and artistic.
Walking through Hongdae, which is always crowded with young people, means meeting today’s Korean youth and enjoying the free atmosphere they breathe. Although commonly referred to the area near Hongik University, today’s Hongdae area extends to the vicinity of Sangsu Station and Hapjeong Station.
