Carefree enthusiasm is everywhere in this energetic
neighborhood centered on Hongik University, Korea’s
top art school. From its assortment of murals to the
occasional amateur street performances, creativity and
expression make up the wild and beating heart of
vibrant Hongdae. At the Free and Hope Market (weekends
at the Hongdae Children’s Playground) you'll find one
of Seoul’s most popular handmade and creative markets
