Hongdae & Its Secret Local Area with Ko
Explore both the popular lively part and the hidden local part of Hongdae. With me, you’ll be able to see the big difference between these two districts in Hongdae yourself. ———————————————————————————————— This Hongdae tour is very unique. We walk through local alleys and hear all the slang names of each area, where you may not find out as a foreigner. By this, you’ll witness ‘BOTH sides of Hongdae.’ Hongdae is not just a giant popular district like most tourist think. Within Hongdae, Koreans go to specific areas for different purposes. Shopping, club cultures, dating and girls night out have their own areas with “invisible boundaries” made among locals. By the end of this tour, you’ll have the answers to these kinds of questions about Hongdae! -Where do Koreans shop and find the fashion trend? -If I ever ask out a Korean guy/lady, where should I take him/her to? -Why Hongdae is called Hongdae? -How these two areas within Hongdae become different? We’ll stop by at one interesting local coffee shop in “the local district.” The coffee fee is not included in the tour so you can choose whatever you’d like to order! Lots of people already have taken this tour, and almost all of them said “I would have never visited this area if I was by myself!” I guarantee you’ll love every minute of this :) Let’s explore Hongdae like a true local together!
Music walk in Hongdae with a musician
This experience will change the way you view Hongdae, a hip and vibrant neighborhood in Seoul. You will follow my daily routine as a musician and I will explain why the Hongdae area is an important place for musicians like me. I will take you to the hidden places that have played a role in the history of Korea's indie scene. Throughout our visit, you'll be able to imagine how musicians start and develop their careers. We'll stop by my favorite coffee shop and afterwards, we'll visit my studio to take a closer look at the life of musician. You may look through the picture books that have influenced me as a composer. You can also try whatever instrument you like—piano, guitar, ukulele, or any of the percussions. If you haven't played any of them before, I'll help you. I can also recommend Korean indie music songs you may like. Lastly, I'll sing my songs just for you and share the stories around them. It will be very special to enjoy an up-close, live performance without a microphone.
⭐Experience Hongdae with a local guide!
By taking a part in my guided tour you’ll be able to see many unique and fascinating Korean local places and experience the proper culture in Hongdae. We will meet up at HongDae subway station (Hongik University St), gate exit 3. First of all, we will explore Yeonnamdong area where you can see the trendiest and coolest restaurants, shops and cafes which are located in a hidden spot that only local people know of. Here you can find many sophisticated and artistic stores in an actual residential area. The place is known for its youth street performance, indie vibe, and fashion. During our walk, I will introduce you to some Korean trends, culture, history and many interesting facts about HongDae. Second of all, we will explore Seogyodong area which is known for its urban arts and indie music culture, clubs and entertainment. By the end of the tour, you can enjoy other things like shopping, sitting in the park, drinking and feeling the proper city life and have a lot of fun. Please feel free to ask me any questions about HongDae and Korea and I will answer to the best of my abilities. The tour will last about 2 hours. Thank you for your time and I hope to see you soon.^^
