Neighborhood: Jongno-gu

A famous area in Seoul, this street got its name because it was once the site of Seoul National University. In 1975, the university moved to another area, but the street retained its name. Art galleries and theaters crowd the street. In addition, many free performances are given by street performers as well as production companies. There are several small one-room theaters where you sit so close to the stage that you almost feel you are part of the play. While Daehangno was once filled with student demonstrators, it has now matured into a hub for young people and artists alike.
