The area surrounding Konkuk University is a lively neighbourhood with lots to see and do. There is a large Lotte department store and the StarCity shopping complex as well as streets lined with restaurants, independent cafes, and bars, making this part of the city a major entertainment destination for Seoulites. Just recently opened in the area is the innovatively designed Common Ground. The first of its kind in the nation, the Common Ground is a shopping mall built with distinctive blue shipping containers that is home to a variety of fashion brands, restaurants, and food trucks. For those who prefer to take a stroll or enjoy some fresh air, Ttukseom Hangang Park is only a short walk away.
