This time, I was at Gangnam and Apgujeong. Gangnam is in the south side of the river, and known to be the more expensive side to Seoul. Apgujeong has all the fancy shops and whatnot (especially on Cheongdam-dong Fashion Street).
I took a walk there, Hangang Park, Ttukseom Park (a nice area where you can ride the swan boats seen in Lie to Me; also has plenty of steps and an esplanade, where all K-drama actors go to brood or make shady deals.
I also met some wonderful gals that evening and we all had a great time for dinner and at Ttukseom Park! Woohoo!
Cheongdamdong Fashion Street. Lots of fancy stores here…
Hangang Park. This was on the Gangnam side, and it was so shady. Like, shady because of trees, and shady because it was mostly deserted and it was dark. I felt like I could have gotten raped in this area. But if you walk further, you’ll pass by a high school, and so there would be a lot of students on the streets.
Plus, I feel like Heartstrings filmed here too – i.e. when Shin and Kyu Won did that walk of memories and then finally reunited in the last episode.
Doosan Tower at Dongdaemun, aka Doota. In my humble opinion, best shopping center in Dongdaemun. Dongdaemun isn’t the cheapest of areas (unless you buy in the stalls outside or bargain like heck, or buy in bulk) but they have really nice stuff – clothing, souvenir, and accessories-wise. Namdaemun is the cheapest market (both in quality and price) and Dongdaemun is above that. (With Myeongdong and Insadong above those too.)
