Hello, everyone! We are Creatrip, a group of Korean travel experts.
We proudly present you the latest, useful Korean travel information and tips every day.
Today, I will introduce Daehangno (University Street) located in Hyehwa, Seoul and the various attractions and restaurants around it. Hyehwa is close to Iwha Mural Village, Naksan Park, and Sungkyunkwan University. I hope everyone can come here and experience the lively energetic atmosphere of Seoul university students that is different from that of Hongik University or Ehwa.
Koreans often enjoy Hyehwa's Daehangno (University Street) more than that of Hongik University or Ehwa.
Hyehwa Daehangno (University Street) may seem like a place where there are not a lot of famous brands but it is actually a great place to look around and has a young vibrant atmosphere. This is because there is Sungkyunkwan University nearby as well as major transportation stops that lead to Jongno and Dongdaemun.
There is also the Ihwa Mural Village and the Naksan Park as shown in the map above that is close to Hyehwa station so keep these places in mind when visiting.

Iwha Mural Village (이화벽화마을)
The Ihwa Mural Village which was once really popular is located in Seoul making transportation to and from very convenient. It is the location of various Korean drama films and was really popular a few years back.
As a lot of tourists started to come visit this village regardless of day and night, the residents of the village started to take down popular murals and put up signs saying "I want to live quietly here".
The Ihwa Mural Village because of this is pretty empty. I don't recommend you come here but if you do want to I recommend you go quietly and don't leave any trash behind.
