Itaewon is close to former/ existing US army Headquarter. Most shop owners/ keepers command good English for this reason. Itaewon has variety of restaurants + interesting shopping areas, socks, shoes, cloths, leather garments, goods, souvenier, hats, caps, scarves, jewellery, watches etc.

Itaewon was once shunned by locals as a seedy, red

and its surrounding neighborhoods such as Kyunglidan
