The area was recommended by locals and indeed, it was interesting to walk around. We spotted many local singers. It was dominated by youngsters. We took a coffee and watched different kind of people walking around.

Lots of plastic surgery clinics here. It's a hip and trendy shopping street. I came here to shop at Lapalette, but I couldn't find it. Overall, a nice neighbourhood and is less crowded compared to Myeongdong.
