Right after 이대 (Edae), we cab down to 홍대 (Hongdae) also known as Hongik University Street; the area provides street art festivals and performances, as well as music concerts by independent artists and mainstream entertainers.
The Hongdae Area (홍대앞) is a region in Seoul, South Korea near the Hongik University, after which it is named. It is known for its urban arts and indie music culture, clubs and entertainments. The area is located in Mapo-gu in the western end of Seoul, stretching from Seogyo-dong to Hapjeong-dong.
Hongdae (홍대) is an abbreviation of Hongik Daehakgyo, the Hongik University (홍익대학교). The term ‘hongdae’ is usually used in regards to the Hongik University which has one of the nation’s top fine arts colleges in South Korea. – Wikipedia
Some events you may like to take note are:
1) The last Friday of each month in Hongdae is “Club Day”, a wristband-powered event which allows entry to more than a dozen clubs for the price of one. Revellers can expect long lines at popular clubs. For a short time in 2008 through early 2009 it was canceled due to high levels of violence and disturbances. However, due to increased police presence and regulations that deny entry to American soldiers and underage individuals at many clubs and venues, this monthly event has resumed.
2) “Sound Day” is the indie rock musicians’ version of “Club Day” that happens on the 2nd Friday for live clubs and concert halls.
3) On weekends, from March to November at 1pm – 6pm, flea markets are held on Hongdae Playground (놀이터) that is in front of the main gate of Hongik University. The flea markets are called “Free Market” on Saturdays and “Hope Market” on Sundays. They are fledgling craft markets of things made by students and street artists, with its artsy atmosphere. – Wikipedia
Many will claim that there is no other street food stall that’s as popular as modak modak (grilled chicken skewers) at Edae 이대, but this particular Modak Modak 모닭모닭 I’m talking about is a shop. The very shop my children have been trying to locate since their last visits. If I am not wrong, Modak Modak 모닭모닭 started out as a street stall in Edae.
My children were glad we found Modak Modak 모닭모닭 (the shop – which shares the same name as the dish). The omelet was rich and fluffy with crunchy juicy bits of onions. The service could not be faulted. Everything was perfect!
