Hongik Children's Park

Hongik Children's Park—it's got almost everything, except for children. People-watching is a must when visiting any city, and the Hongdae park is arguably one of the best places for that in Seoul as it, as of 2017, nurtures rather diverse groups of individuals who call Hongdae their second home. In a place like Seoul where alcohol is allowed at public spaces, cheap convenience store drinks can always be paired with curious incidents—in Hongdae park's case, with a chaotic mix of sounds that street musicians and evangelists happen to create, innocent or alcohol-infused efforts of mating and strange and/or fascinating characters. With the recent construction, the park has fewer seats than before but there are still enough.

I don't understand why foreigners recommend this place. (I'm Korean.) It just an empty children's park. Nothing. I could say that you might be disappointed if you go there. However, every Saturday there is a small flea market. But it is not attractive either.

I personally recommend traditional markets such as Hwanghak-dong flea market or Namdaemun market.
