Walking along a Hongdae-ap Street


This is the place where pleasure-seeking youngsters spend their weekend in Seoul. Hongdae-ap refers to the streets in the neighborhood of Hongik University, the famous birthplace of artists, where sensuous amusements and sights, such as dance clubs, live music clubs, galleries, theaters,graffiti arts and flea markets come together.

Also well-known as a stage for new, experimental designs, you are sure to espy unique objects here that cannot be found in any other place. On the last Friday night of every month, Hogdae-ap turns into a venue for the “Club Day” festival that offers an opportunity to tour any of ten or more clubs for one low price. In this festival, young travelers will make new friends in Seoul, and those who wish to experience the future and underground culture of Seoul will sample the peculiar tastes of the non-main streamers.

My work place is in Hongdae-ap and I live near by. So everyday I walk along Hongdae-ap street from home to office. Nowadays Hongdae-ap is a well-known place as amusements and sights rather than a dwelling site. In the evening, streets are crowded with so many young people and noise. So I’d like to walk in the morning than nights. In the morning, I can see real life.
