Shopping and eating in Hongdae

Hongdae is a great, fun & dynamic neighborhood in Seoul.

It is very close to one of the city’s most important universities: Hongik. The nearest subway stations are Hongik University, Sangsu and Hapjeong (where I started my tour).

I went for a walk there last Sunday, met my great Korean friend and we went to the Flea Market. Every week-end, art students, artists, artisans and various sellers come together in this little square and showcase their best artwork or products.

Colorful paintings

a selection of shoes

Beautiful business card holders

A super nice calligrapher offering to write your name for free

An anonymous artist offering a free portrait

Pretty cool eh?

A funny cartoonist

Finding great books (classics for me!)

Gulliver’s Travels translated into Korean 😉

There are so many funky & original boutiques in the area. Just check the following that caught my attention!

And last but not least, some restaurants as well as coffee & waffle shops 😉

This one left me totally intrigued, I must go back & investigate ha ha

Inviting isn’t it?

That was my little exploration of this corner of Seoul. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!

Have a great day (wherever you may be!)

Til next time,

Lots of l♥ve always,
