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.

Very friendly and warm family! Definitly a good choice to stay at their appartment if you are looking for a private typical korean stay( altough the area is very international, many foreign people and food). Subway is very near and convenient. Even tough nog everyone in the family speaks english, it still is very easy to communicate with them. With any question we had, they helped us and very flexible.
The location was excellent, very convenient and near Itaewon station. The house was warmly heated and had all the needed facilities - speedy wifi, hot showers, toiletries and towels, even a daily laundry service!
YJ and his grandparents were v hospitable and helpful with helping us get to the airport as well (:
The only downside would be that sometimes neighbours in the same aptment can be v inconsiderate - hogging dishes and dirtying the toilets (but it's not their fault)
Would definitely stay here again when I go back to Seoul! (:
The place it's awesome ! I was stayed there 6 day . Close to airport bus and subway. I wish to stay there next time .
Youngjin was out of town while we were there to stay at his place. However he was very helpful and the instructions to his place is clear and he was very helpful and prompt to answer to the questions we have and requests we had. For e.g. we needed a weighing scale to weigh our luggage and we messaged him at night and very soon after, his dad came sending the weighing scale down. And his grandmother is super friendly and helpful. She made sure we had a well taken care stay, she even prepared sweet potatoes for us and she even helped us with our luggage while we called for cabs to the airport on the last day. The only thing is that the apartment is very high up the hill so be prepared to hike a bit, but other than that generally it was a pleasant stay for us both. It was nice to return to a warm apartment in the midst of winter and have a nice room to reside in. If you need an accommodation in Seoul for an affordable price, this is definitely recommended. And not forgetting to mention that the train station is a quick 8 minutes walk from the apartment and there are possibly some shopping (for us mainly cosmetics) that you can do... Right across the main street there is Face Shop, Nature Republic, Etude house etc... So you don't have to do all your shopping at myeongdong or other famous place and you can enjoy a convenient shopping experience just right near the apartment.
Youngjin and his family have been a fabulous host. We took a midnight flight to Seoul, and only reached the apartment at wee hours, but his parents stayed up and waited for us. The apartment was very clean and it was very cozy for our 2 weeks stay.
Youngjin also offered to help us book our skiing when we had trouble communicating, he also suggested a better skiing location instead.
We had a great stay overall. :)
A great place to stay...stay there in Novemner for 5 nights, booked 2 rooms for my family. The place is great, clean and of course beautiful. The family of Yougjin do really take care of us, appreciated it a lot!
Nearby to convenient store, local pubs and eating area. 10 minutes walk to the Central Mosque for muslims. You can just walk by the main street and there is a lot of shops that sell everything. Also nearby to Itaewon subway station.
Have a really pleasant stay in Seoul, youngjin and family assist a lot for my stay there, thank you very much.
We stayed with Victor for 5 nights. Overall, it was a very pleasant stay. The room was spacious and really clean. The kitchen equipped with basic cookware and dinnerware so we were able to prepare our own meals.
In terms of location, its near public transport system such as subway and bus. There are a lot of restaurants around the area, but a little bit more expensive versus other areas since Itaewon is expat area. There are a lot of clubs and pubs nearby if you're looking to hang out and party.
The house though is situated on a hill, so its a bit of a climb. Espcially if you are lugging around heavy luggage. From the airport, I suggest taking the subway to Seoul Station, then take the cab from Seoul Station. Subway fare is about 4,200 KRW and cab is about 6,000KRW. A little cheaper than taking the bus which is 15,000KRW, or taking the subway all the way to Itaewon, as you have to carry your luggage and sometimes elevator does not work and you have to take the stairs.
Even though Youngjin and I never had a chance to meet during our short stay, he was the perfect communicative host! All the directions to the house are outlined perfectly in his blog with photos of every step and a set of korean directions for the cab driver. The apartment itself is very cozy and in a great location in Itaewon! We had a wonderful time here.
We had a great stay at this place.
Its very conveniently located near Itaewon subway station and as a western, its always nice to be close to all the international restaurants if you are fed up with the asian food for a moment.
The apartment is very nice and clean. The owner is very helpful and we even arrived very late at night it was no problem to enter the apartment.
We really liked the place as it was very quiet but still very nicely located. Would for sure recommend it to others!
