Hapjeong is an awesome artsy quiet spot just one stop before the busy Hongdae area. This place has a unique and creative vibe with some amazing small shops for people with more colorful tastes in fashion plus a slew of cozy cafes! Adding to the setting of Hapjeong are its streets and corners painted with amazing graffiti ~ these paintings are actually starting to outshine the work found at Hongdae.
Maybe more artists are coming to Hapjeong to paint larger murals now because it is a bit quieter vs Hondgae which has *really* becoming overrun with party people… not sure. Regardless, if you want to spend a peaceful afternoon walking and checking out cafes and street art this is an ideal place and now one of my favorite areas to just stroll.
this artist (NANA) always paints very dark things… but I kinda like them. The art above was recently painted over sadly, I thought it was a perfect spot because it always had a massive pile of trash bags below it. LOL Planned maybe?
down NANA’s little alley of nightmares~
