People of different nationality coming together, to live, to make a living or just visiting. More international restaurant here then Korean. Be prepared to walking along sloppy roads. Image in the day and night is huge.

Party area of Seoul. Long road of bars and restaurants. Busy. Lively. Bright lights. A place for locals, tourists and off duty US soldiers to have some food and drink. Good place to go for some night life

Neighboring the immense Yongsan American Garrison,
Itaewon was once shunned by locals as a seedy, red
light district. But within the past few years, Itaewon
and its surrounding neighborhoods such as Kyunglidan
and Haebangchong have undergone a major revival to

trendy international restaurants dot the area
alongside hip lounge bars and some of Seoul’s hottest
