This modern and affluent area, which means “south of the river,” has wider streets than you’ll find elsewhere in Seoul and a variety of high-end restaurants. Home of the COEX Mall, Gangnam has newer stores and therefore attracts a younger crowd than the open markets found in other parts of the city. Gangnam is world famous thanks to Psy’s song Gangnam Style. If you are looking to find Gangnam style, visit one of Seoul’s bigger and exclusive clubs like Club Ellui, Vanguard, Octagon & Syndrome!
