Gangnam, Seoul has earned quite a name for itself thanks to popular artist ‘Psy’ and his hit song ‘Gangnam Style’ that became a hot sensation worldwide in 2012. In reality, Gangnam is an unquestionably stylish and vibrant community. Dubbed ‘the capital of Seoul’, the district is well-known to be a shopping hub, business centre and certainly a place for Hallyu fans to gather.
In recent years, South Korea has attracted a significant number of tourists – many of whom are Hallyu fans who wish to visit and explore the country. To cater to the increased tourist growth, Korea Tourism has established the ‘K-Star Road’. ‘K-Star Road’ is specially crafted for tourists to visit popular places frequented by their favourite K-pop stars! The course leads you on a tour of Cheongdam-dong, Gangnam-gu, Sinsa-dong and Nonhyu-dong in addition to Apgujeong Galleria Department Store.
Also, entertainment companies such as SM Entertainment, JYP Entertainment, Cube Entertainment, FNC Entertainment and Rain Company are all located in Gangnam, making it the hot spot for fans to try and catch a glimpse of their favourite idol stars!
In the midst of planning a ‘fangirling’ vacation in Seoul, it doesn’t get any more convenient than staying just 10 minutes away from the various entertainment companies! With an elegant exterior, cozy rooms and interior decoration, Cheongdam Guesthouse in Seoul is the perfect choice for your upcoming trip to Korea.
