After walking through the traditional market and experiencing its popular local food, you can walk straight towards the stream. This stream is particularly popular during spring for its cherry blossoms.

 

You can have a romantic leisure walk along the stream leading directly to Hansung Univ. Station (20 mins) for the Seoul City Walk (Naksan Mountain Trail), leading to Naksan Park and Ihwa Mural Village; or head back to Sungshin Women's Univ. Station to catch a movie at the CGV multiplex cinema.
