Introduction

Sinchon
Located in Northwest Seoul, Sinchon is home to a number of private universities, earning the area its nickname ‘University Streets of Sinchon’. In particular, the street between Sinchon Station (Subway Line 2) and Edae (abbreviated for Ewha Womans University) is a shopper’s paradise, offering a wide range of styles and prices. The collection of trendy stores, bars, and delicious cuisine draws throngs of college students and other freethinkers year-round, making this one of the most creative and energetic places in the city.

Hongik University
Hongdae (the abbreviation for Hongik University) has become a symbol of a unique cultural identity among Korea’s youth. The area is home to an eclectic mix of cafés and clubs that have served as breeding grounds for many of Korea’s growing subcultures.
