This place is opposite to SNUH and adjacent to Korea Open university, Marronier park. The place is very vibrant, with multiple options of food and shopping outlets. Multiple beauty shops and shops selling clothes are there. However, things are more costly here.

It is just 15 minutes walk from Dongdaemun. Many arts were installed along the road which is quite attractive and humour sometimes. Many restaurants could be found, especially there are several Korean Barbecue and desserts shops. Fashion and Stationery shops could also be found here.
