Apgujeong Rodeo Street (압구정 로데오 거리)

Apgujeong-dong (Hangul: 압구정동; Hanja: 狎鷗亭洞) is a ward of Gangnam-gu in Seoul, South Korea. The dong originates from a pavilion with the same name founded by Han Myeong-hoe (Hangul: 한명회; Hanja: 韓明會 1415-1487), a high-ranking government officer during the Joseon dynasty. This place is considered an upmarket residential, fashion, shopping, and educational area.

One of the main shopping area is Apgujeong Rodeo Street, along with 'Cheongdam’s Fashion Street' in Cheongdam-dong and Garosu-gil in Sinsa-dong, which are connected by the main Apgujeong-ro, they are seen as fashionable and trendsetting destinations.

The beginning of Rodeo Street is located across the street from the Galleria Department Store. The entrance of the street is marked with a special archway. Past the archway is a multitude of shops, both featuring fashion from Korean brands and international designer labels. Shopping ranges from the extremely affordable to luxury labels. You can get a t-shirt for as low as 10,000 won, or a designer one for 100,000 won! You may experience all sorts of shopping at Rodeo Street.

Beside shopping, you may also find the places filled with cafes, restaurants, and bars, making it fun to visit during the day and at night.

Seorae Village (서래마을)

 You might not know that the Seorae Village is sometimes nicknamed "Montmartre". This is due to its hilltop location. It is a small French enclave in Banpo-dong, Seocho-gu, Seoul, South Korea where it is also home to the French people Most of them are employees of French corporations doing business in the country.

The village began to form there in 1985, with the movement of Lycée Français de Séoul to the area. The school, the city's only French international school, had formerly been located just north of the Han River in Hannam-dong, a large international neighborhood. French people with children followed, as did bakeries and wine shops.

The village is the site of a 20,000 m² park, "Montmartre Park",  which is often the site of public events for foreigners. It is near Express Bus Terminal Station on Seoul Subway Line 3.

Along the main street, you will realized a large concentration of European-style restaurants and dessert cafes, as well as wineries and cafes.
