Sinchon Area (신촌) is a busy shopping district sorounded by many famous universities such as Ewha Womans University(이화여자대학교), Yonsei University (연세대학교), Sogang University(서강대학교), Myongji University (명지대학교) and Hongik University(홍익대학교) which explains the young crowd in this area.
There are several forms of entertainment in this area such as bars, cafes, DVD rooms(DVD방), PC rooms (PC방) and shopping. The area is also filled with restaurants (especially Japanese Restaurants) and street vendors. A brand new Hello aPM is opening at the area too. I found out that things are cheaper at Sinchon. For instance; the price of street snacks normally cost 1000₩ in areas such as Myeongdong and Dongdaemun will only cost 700₩ at Sinchon area.
Sinchon is located near Seoul Subway Station Line 2 Ewha Womans University Station or Sinchon Station (not to be confused with Sincheon Station).
