Time Out says

How to find the Salt Road : Come out exit 5 of Ewha Womans University subway stop and you will notice Myeongseong Chinese Medicine Clinic. Facing the clinic, turn into the alley on your right where you will see a CU convenience store, and walk behind the store to climb the uphill road to #36 Salt Road.

The Salt Road No. 19 : Walk along the Salt Road and one of your first pleasant surprises will be what we like to call a “not-store.” This “not-store” is an outdoor collection of free stuff on the doorstep of a pink-colored house. The residence belongs to Grandpa Kim Jong-cheol who collects discarded but usable household items and leaves them for others. Supporters of this philanthropic cause can also drop off their own goods while visiting. 

The Salt Road No. 32 : Stand at this very spot for one of the best views in the neighborhood. Smile Bab’s co-owner Choi Sung-ho recommended this place as his favorite in Yeomri-dong for its resemblance to the 1994 TV drama "The Moon of Seoul," which depicted the lives of hardworking Seoul residents.
