This area used to be a trendy area with a lot of nice cafes, restaurants, and boutique shops. However, in the recent years has seen a huge number of big brands coming in and made the whole area a.... meh... not interesting any more.

This street is lined with fashion stores and cafes and youthful crowds. It's better than the many malls in Seoul as it offers good diversity and nothing beats outdoor shopping!

Although there are lots of people here, but for some reason, I don’t feel any excitement here. Lots of cafeteria and some restaurants selling non Korean food. No street food. If you are looking for food, you might have better luck with the next parallel...More

This tree lines street is filled with boutiques which offer really nice clothes and accessories. We also enjoyed cafes from the quaint 8 SECONDS cafe to the cutie ones like Line and Skin food cafe. Not crowded at all.

Unlike Myungdong (a lot of tourists, China town-like), this place is less crowded, with trendy/quality shops and cafe. Shops open at 10-10:30, early enough for most. Attached my lovely daughter in LINE store.
