or the Hongdae Art Market as how I would prefer to call it.
located right next to the Hongdae playground, this little flea market is pretty interesting. mostly things handmade. I dare not go close to each shop to capture their products as some had a no picture sign on it. =(. if I am not mistaken some of the vendors are students from Hongik University =D.
opens at 1pm every Saturday (from March to November)
I’ve always wanted to come here to take a look at the artsy stuff the people make to sell.
they sell things from handmade rings, bags, hats, shoes to portraiture drawing. I reached at about 1240 where many shops were still preparing to open. and in a while, it snowed!
want to see how you’d look in a superman/dinosaur suit? =D.
for a reasonable price or 7,000won, you can have your very own self portrait!
the famous Hongdae playgrounds with the craziest amount of graffiti.
even the playground is graffiti-ed!
this is how I wore when it snowed. it was pretty warm that morning! just not until later…………. =S.
anyways! here are the directions
(credits to the Visit Korea website for the directions!)
I don’t exactly know how to explain on how to get there. but here’s how the Visit Korea website described. if you know where is Hongik Univ, just walk towards it and turn right. that’s all I know haha.
you will then see convenience stores on your right and the playground on your left. it’s a little uphill as you can see from this picture above.
the snow is too light to be captured on camera pfft. it was snowing when I took this picture!
