Near Hongdae, there is also a place where great amount of artists are gathered together.  It is "Daehak-ro" (대학로) and this place is known for plays from little theaters. But not only the play, they also have comedies or other smaller scaled concerts :) And for the positive side of this is that you can encounter the high quality cultural art, and the sitting is very close with the stage so you can even hear their breathes!

Daehak-ro has many little theaters, so you can find the play or concert or whatever you want to see; but also they have many place to eat. Since Daehak-ro was and still is the center of cultural art for long long time, there are restaurants with long history. Have a date with your loved one with a play then a restaurant - what a perfect date course!

Also Marronnier Park is near by. Marronnier Park is like a symbol of Daehak-ro. The park is included with children's playground, outdoor stage, pond, fountain, convenient stores, etc. For the outdoor stage, mainly many amateur singers are performing their music. 

Marronnier Park was also featured in <MBC We Got Married>, where Jo Jeongchi and Jung In met for first time in from the show. 

You can also see the street artists often in the area :) 

Daehak-ro is located in subway line 4 Hyehwa Station (혜화역). So take subway at line 2 (green line) at Hongik Univ. Station (홍대입구역), then transfer to line 4 (light blue line) at Dongdaemun History & Culture Park Station (동대문역사문화공원역). Off at Hyehwa Station (혜화역) then exit 1. Then you'll see Daehak-ro. 

So how about a walk in Marronnier Park and see some interesting performances?
