Pyeongchangdong is known as Beverly Hills of Seoul, and if you watch Korean dramas, you will often see Pyeongchangdong or hear about it, as the rich male leads in dramas often live in this area. While you walk along the alleys, you will find quite a lot of art galleries. And right behind the area, Bukhansan mountain is there, and actually the Pyeongchangdong area is part of the hiking trail around Bukhansan (Course 6) known as Bukhansan Dulle-gil.
I like Gana Art Centre the most here among all of the art viewing places in this district. Gana Art Center is designed by world renowned architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, he is also the architect of Incheon International Airport. Don’t forget to pay attention to the building itself when you are visiting Gana Art Centre.
To go to Gana Art Centre, take bus 171, 1020 (exit 3 of Gyeongbukgong Station), and get off at Lotte Apartment Station 롯데아파트 정류장, cross the road and walk up for about 320m, Gana Art Centre will be on your right hand side. When I went there a couple of years ago, there was a restaurant which appeared in Korean drama- The Greatest Love, but it was expensive and the food was no good.
