(From Korea Joongang Daily) Yeonnam-dong has become the latest “it” place. It only takes a few minutes to walk from Hongik University Station to Yeonnam-dong, but the neighborhood looks like a different planet from the more modern parts of the city. Time stands still in this neighborhood, as many of its markets, drug stores and other shops still use old signboards and fonts from 20 years ago, and narrow, labyrinthine alleys are everywhere. Throughout Yeonnam-dong, shops are nestled in unlikely locations, which is the biggest charm of this neighborhood – being able to stumble upon small, unusual shops as you walk around.
