Who will not be captivated with Street Art? But this small community in Seoul is a priceless gem of all for me. I love walking on every alleys of this community because every steps I take is another art. Installation, mural, photography, wrought metal art...More
The views alone are worth the walk up the hillside roads to Ihwa Mural Village. It was 48 degrees C with the humidex the day we walked up to the village in Seoul and we were pleased we made the trek. The little area is...More
Was looking forward to the village as had seen some pictures. Sadly the famous stuff like the steps were covered over. It's a bit of a climb to the top and kdrama fans can see Strong Woman Do Bong Soon's house which is apparently a...More
It was my first time visiting this neighbourhood and I was shocked at all the messages doodled in red paint by the residents of the area saying “Please be quiet” and “I wan’t to live” etcetc. It can be seen that the residents hate to...More

Although some of the artworks are removed, it is still worth a trip there.

We went to see the Ihwa Mural village to see the more known wall paintings. Apparently local people had painted over the the better known painting of fishes at the staircase. This was a bit of disappointment. The rest is so-so but you can enjoy...More
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
put on at Marronnier Park and in more professional productions at small independent theaters scattered through the neighborhood. For a break, be sure to check out Ihwa Mural Village nearby, a former shantytown transformed into an art village with installations and wall paintings. It hosts a Filipino Market on Sundays.
