if you’re familiar with the hongdae area in seoul, then you are no doubt aware that it has quite the party pulse. whether it’s kicking back in the playground having a few drinks out in the open, getting sweaty in one of it’s numerous clubs, or bar hopping ‘till 6am, it is one of the premiere places for fun. but the backbone of the neighbourhood is hongik university, famed for it’s art programs. the free market held on weekends is a great place to buy and support local student art. but back amongst the narrow sidestreets is mural alley. it’s a lengthy stretch of road bursting with vibrant art on all sides. it’s definitely worth a gander… even if you just need some fresh air to cope with a hangover from the previous night.
