Hongdae:
       
 
There's a unique charm to the area which is hard to capture in pictures. It's artsy, people are dressed differently than elsewhere in Seoul, and it's full of dancing clubs. The high number of university students (100,000+ students in Ehwa, Yonsei, Sogang and Hongik) in the area combined with Hongik being Korea's leading university in arts are probably why Hongdae is Hongdae. This is where some will spend their friday or saturday night dancing till dawn and having a korean-style breakfast at 6 or 7 am before going home for a bit of sleep. Every fourth friday of every month is "club night": a 15,000 wons pass gave access to any dancing club in the area.
