Seoul is an enormous city. I know that’s an obvious thing to say, but it’s truly monstrously sized. I live out in the boonies (Yeongtong), so getting into the hip areas of the city takes almost an hour and a half. And yet, I still happily made the trek to Hongdae and Itaewon this weekend (Itaewon will be discussed further in a forthcoming post).
Hongdae has a fantastic little outdoor market, some enviable street art,
and some wonderful restaurants, but what really got me was Magpie’s. Actual pale ale (as opposed to Cass, which is Korean for Budweiser) in a weirdly enticing cave-like bar.
Both my friend and I love beer; we spent a couple relaxing hours in Magpies.
And the day was only just beginning….
