I’ve been to Seoul for 4 times, and yet this was my first time discovering Itaewon as in details of what they really have in Itaewon.
I was told by a Korean friend that Itaewon is a red light district on my first trip to Seoul, hence, I didn’t explore much on this township, but in fact, I started to felt curious about Itaewon and re-visited this place again solely because…..it’s a popular spot that G-Dragon always go too, and I’ve seen a lot of artists visiting the pubs in this area too.
Cakeshop Club (Itaewon)
Cakeshop is the club that G-Dragon always go to for some private event and so then it has become a place that VIPs (fans) must at least take a stroll around Itaewon to look for this club.
