September in Seoul - Hongdae & Myeongdong [Day 7]

Seoul recommended Shopping spots: Hongdae and Myeongdong | by Meheartseoul
Hongdae - Hongik University Street (홍대)
is an abbreviation of Hongik Daehakgyo (학교). Hongik University (Hongdae) which is well known for its prestigious art college in Korea.

Hongdae is known for its youthful and romantic ambiance, artistic and 
cultural with art galleries, studios, theaters, design shops, cozy cafes, 
bars, restaurants, and nightclubs.

Actually we came here as Trick Eye Museum is located in Hongdae area, and we saw cart selling Korean Egg Bread (계란 빵 = Gaeran Bbang), we're too full to even drink a sip of water. As I promised my daughter to buy her egg bread before we came to Korea... we went there again on last day just for this Egg Bread!

These 2 kiddos quite troublesome when it comes to food...
They have opposite preferences... Xuan likes egg, Zhi dislike it a lot!

Zhi likes Hotteok (호떡 = Korean Sugar Pancakes), 
but can you see Xuan's expression?

Ok, mission completed! We just leisurely walked around this district that attracted a lot of youngsters and students and tourists because...
