Very vibrant and lots of young people around. Lots of street shops selling affordable ladies clothings, cosmetics and socks. Better than Myeongdong in my opinion. If you have time to only visit Myeongdong or Hongdae, I will say visit Hongdae!

Lots of great stores here, clothing and skin care come to mind, oh and shoes. Didn't see an Art Market, though saw many signs of art on the street. Street perfomers, good bars and restaurants and street performers, what more could you want!

Carefree enthusiasm is everywhere in this energetic
neighborhood centered on Hongik University, Korea’s
top art school. From its assortment of murals to the
occasional amateur street performances, creativity and
expression make up the wild and beating heart of
vibrant Hongdae. At the Free and Hope Market (weekends
at the Hongdae Children’s Playground) you'll find one
of Seoul’s most popular handmade and creative markets
