The network of charming alleyways of Yeonnam-dong, in eastern Seoul, is Seoul’s latest hot spot, with shopkeepers and restaurateurs taking advantage of the neighborhood’s low rent, compared to that of the nearby Hongdae or Sinchon areas, to open hip, independent eateries and shops. It is best to drop by in the early evening to enjoy the lively atmosphere on the busy streets and inside the numerous restaurants and shops. Highlights include the Pinocchio bookstore and Coffee Libre.

Information & Tips about Yeonnam-dong?


  • 3 years ago


A stone's throw away from Hongdae lies Yeonnam-dong. It is a quiet, sleepy residential area that also houses a burgeoning restaurant, cafe, guesthouse, and independent shopping scene. Most of the restaurants and shops are non-franchise. At present, it strikes a perfect balance. Businesses have popped up, but they have been built in a way that maintains and even enhances the old-school character of Yeonnam-dong. Whether this will be the case in five years is irrelevant. At the moment, Yeonnam-dong may just be the best place to spend an afternoon or evening in Seoul.
