Seoul’s Second Most Popular Gay Nightlife (After Homo Hill)
Jongno is one of the most famous areas for gay travellers seeking the local gay scenes. Only 25 mins on the train to get to Homo Hill Itaewon, Korean’s main gay hub. Also street food and shopping. It’s the place that everyone will be sitting on the side of the street for dinner next to subway station of Jngno 3-ga, line 5. Afterwards, all boys head down into the narrow street for bar hopping.
Over 25 bars, such as Shortbus and Friends. Keep in mind that the street is located right in the middle of the community and that’s why there are no dance clubs, check it out over the weekends for the crowd.
