See & Do
Samcheong-dong is Seoul's most stylish neighborhood, located just past Gyeongbokgung (Palace)'s stone wall lined street. The name "Samcheong" is derived from the words "sam" meaning “three", and "cheong" meaning "fresh" or "pure", because the mountain, water and the heart of the people in this area are all very fresh and pure. Then it's not wonder why many artists have sought out Samcheong-dong over the years. Because of this, Samcheong-dong became known as an artistic area.
