“Although people would come here and enjoy Ikseon-dong, there was no place in particular for them to hang out,” said the owner of Ikdongdabang. More than just a café, the multipurpose venue is the lovechild of six Ikseon-dong fans called "Ikseon-Dada," who contribute pieces of art to the space. The hanok consists of an outdoor porch decorated with plastic furniture and indoor seating that faces the current season's exhibition (often media art combined with bright contemporary paintings). Serving as the centerpiece for the interior is a wooden chandelier made of fragments of the former building from when it was under renovation. Renowned for having the best drip coffee in the neighborhood, Ikdongdabang's a colorful and delicious addition to these parts.
