ITAEWON : The Global Community in Seoul: Global Fashions and Foods

Itaewon is a unique place in Seoul where one can meet people of diverse nationalities and cultures. There is a popular joke saying that international residents may not know Seoul, but they know Itaewon. Seoul even designated Itaewon as its first ‘Special Tourism District,’ to highlight it as a destination for internationals to enjoy a diversity of culture, shopping, and entertainment experiences.

Itaewon is in the middle of Yongsan-gu, which borders the northern part of the Hangang River. It is also close to Seoul Station, Myeong-dong, and Namsan Mountain. The formation of this exotic and global tourism site is closely associated with modern Korean history.

In the aftermath of the Korean War, American soldiers began to stay in the Yongsan Garrison and, consequently, numerous businesses and housing complexes were formed in Yongsan. In preparation for international meetings, the Seoul Asian and Olympic Games, the government strengthened tourism infrastructures and revitalized commerce, prompting international tourists from other parts of the world (such as Japan, Southeast Asia, Africa, the Middle East, etc.) to visit Itaewon.

Itaewon typically refers to the street full of stores, restaurants, and stalls over 1.4 kilometers between Itaewon 1-dong and Hannam 2-dong in the east. Fashion shops specialize in various imported clothes, leather goods, fur goods, handbags, shoes, and antique furniture. Big and tall sizes unavailable in other areas are well-stocked, and experienced tailors offer customized clothes.

Another one of Itaewon’s many draws is its diverse food culture, which features cuisine from around world. Restaurants right behind Hamilton Hotel form a type of exhibition hall for international foods from Korea, New York, London, India, Thailand, China, Greece, Pakistan, Italy, France, Mexico, Australia, and more. Unique flavors, exotic interiors, and diverse nationalities help to make Itaewon befittingly ‘the global village in Seoul.’

  • Lots of information given at booking about directions and buses to catch from airport which was great. Bus stop only 5 minute walk from apartment. Internet really fast. Clean apartment.

    Downsides - no separate shower, shower head basically over toliet , so was not looking forward to my showers here. Noisey apartment block. Bed was extremely firm.

  • We decided to try airbnb for the first time and stayed at Yoonche's apartment for the first half of our trip in Seoul. His apartment is in the heart of Itaewon. Easy access to public transportation and near the neighborhood's good restaurants and bars. He is very helpful and gives stellar recommendations. His apartment is clean and provides basic necessities :)

  • The host was marvelous providing information about how to get to the apartment before I even left London. The apartment was clean and we'll stocked and exactly what I expected. Definitely would stay here again I'm future.

  • Our flat was under maintenance and Yoonche advised us immediately when we booked. He had arranged for another apartment for us with Mr Jun. We thought this was very professional and everything went smoothly when we arrived.

    The flat was 100% true to the pictures and was as expected. Location was AMAZING. Literally walking distance from all that Itaewon has to offer!!

    We had a problem with internet on the 2nd day and Mr Jun & Yoonche fixed the internet immediately - thank you for that, it was greatly appreciated!

    Overall stay was very enjoyable and everything went smoothly. Yoonche was very easy to reach and very efficient. I would highly recommend both he and Mr Jun as hosts. Very hospitable and made our stay very enjoyable!

    Thank you!

  • This place is in the middle of ETA one with easy access to buses and Metro services, the location was everything I was looking for, the Wi-Fi worked great. The only problem I had with this apartment is that when the people upstairs flush there is a distinct odour in the bedroom nearest toilet as a result, and I found the bathroom a little bit on the neat side apart from that the apartment offered everything else that I needed.

    April 2014
  • The apartment was pretty much as advertised but we did have a few issues. Yoonche agreed to take care of it but I have yet to hear back from him.

  • Yoonche is a very accommodating and helpful host who offered great alternatives. The place is a no frills place with a cozy touch, love the decor of the house!

  • Wonderful First time Airbnb Experience!
    Yoonche was a great host - helpful, accommodating and hospitable.

    Location: Quite close to Itaewon station (Central to most of the major places of interest in Seoul) and surrounded by lots of awesome food places. But the path to the apartment can get quite scary though (for a girl) at night.

    Apartment: Exactly as shown in the pictures. Cosy and clean. Wi-fi was good and reliable. Well-equipped kitchen.

    Heating: Had a little trouble with the heating on the first day as heating and warm water takes about 20 mins.

    Amenities: Would be good to provide more bigger towels.

    Kamsahamnida Yoonche!
    Hope to see you the next time round!
