When you hear “Gangnam”, the first place you think of is “Gangnam Style” right? While Gangnam is known for being the center of Psy’s now legendary Gangnam Style, it is also the most exclusive neighbourhood in Seoul. Seoul is the capital of Korea and Gangnam can be said to be the capital of Seoul. People come to Gangnam to see and be seen; it is the heart of shopping, business and even hallyu. Gangnam is the busiest area of Seoul and it’s densely packed with restaurants, cafes, bars, clubs, boutiques, and even entertainment companies.
In Gangnam, there is a famous street called the K-Star Road. The K-Star Road is a special project for foreign tourists who love Korean culture and hallyu stars. It’s THE road of shops and stores frequented by hallyu stars around Cheongdam-dong, Gangnam-gu, Sinsa-dong, and Nonhyun-dong areas from Apgujeong Galleria Department Store to SM Entertainment. Cheongdam-dong is the center of Hallyu, with SM Entertainment, JYP Entertainment, Cube Entertainment, FNC Entertainment and most recently, Rain Company making Cheongdam their homeground.
In the midst of the many idols and entertainment companies, that’s where Cheongdam Guesthouse is situated! Located just 5 minutes away from JYP, Cube, FNC and SM Entertainment buildings, Cheongdam Guesthouse is the place to stay at for any KPOP fan.
Cheongdam Guesthouse is also 10 minutes away from major concert venues such as the Olympic Park Stadium and COEX, making it the perfect location for any KPOP fans coming to Seoul for Hallyu.
Coming from Apgujeong Rodeo station (Bundang line), you would pass the old SM Entertainment building and Rain Company before reaching Cheongdam Guesthouse. If you come from Cheongdam Station (line 7), you will pass JYP Entertainment building before turning the corner and reaching our guesthouse.
