Hongdae is a trendy gathering place in Seoul, and there are also many online red gourmet restaurants here. This spicy grilled octopus on Hongdae Pedestrian Street has a high popularity.

Located in Seoul’s Seogyo neighborhood, the Hongdae Free Market is a fun and unique arts and crafts market where artists, performers, musicians, and visitors can interact face to face.

For those looking for a unique and charming cultural experience in Seoul, visiting the Hongdae Free Market should certainly be on your list.
