A nice street with a large variety of shops selling mostly branded goods. I would recommend visiting during the weekdays as it can be quite crowded during the weekends. It is in between BIFF Square (a must-visit place) and is connected to Yongdusan Park via an escalator.

One of the more robust shopping districts that I've found here in Korea. It's not just limited to culture and fashion; it includes all kinds of bars, clubs, restaurants, and drinking establishments. Definitely recommended if you're in the area, and it's a short walk from the nearby subway stop or plenty of bus stops

There are a lot of small stores with a great choice of cheap and middle priced clothing and shoes, which are very different then the ones in Seoul.

If i could go back every weekend i would. Theres so much to see and do. Theres many places to eat but also there is a street just for food venders. I enjoyed the fact that the prices were pretty cheap compared to the malls.
