A friend’s gopchang-gui (grilled small intestines) restaurant at Kondae
(Information from 10 Magazine) While many may still be in the dark about Kondae and its hidden-yet-contagious nightlife, the newly-hip area is filled with mouthwatering restaurants, cheap clothing shops, expansive parks, and even department stores. At night, Kondae comes alive with its offbeat bars and vibrant populace. Its atmosphere is the perfect mix of popular night spots Gangnam and Hongdae: it maintains the energy and crazy youthful atmosphere of the both places, but without the fancy fluff and superficiality of city-centered Gangnam, and cheap clubs of Hongdae. Instead, it fuses the embrace-the-night attitude and busy daytime sheen of Seoul’s top hangouts with a local tinge and homey feel.
