Itaewon was the location for a US Military camp in Yongsan during the the Korean War. This was why in the 1950s there were a lot of American military personnel living near or at Itaewon. Nowadays, it has developed into a special area for foreign tourists to visit.

Due to this, Itaewon is the most foreign-like place in Seoul which has led to the creation of the Global Village Festival which celebrates the people from all around the world that live at Itaewon.
