Daehakno (literally "University Street") is home to a
number of famed universities, so the neighborhood is
always abuzz with university students, and a youthful,
optimistic energy permeates the air. The abundance of
restaurants, cafes, and shops cater to the younger
demographic in both taste and prices, making it a
popular meet-up area. Daehakno is also famed for its
creativity, showcased in the many amateur performances
