Jeongja-dong Cafe Street
Mild scent of coffee and music greet you as you walk along Jeongja-dong Cafe Street. Each building has its unique design and luxurious lightings remaking this place exotic and delightful.

- The best love stories are as many as the number of lovers
You may guess that three are too many and one is too small for the number of people walking together alongside various cafes and zelkova trees which make cool shades.
Maybe it’s because they look so happy walking in steps. Zelkova trees on the street create cool shades in summer, fallen leaves in autumn and romantic mood in winter. People feel the sweet flavor of coffee and enjoy the mood of the street. When the cafe lightings softly turn on the street after sunset, the time enters a new phase. What they have known over time or they just realized highlights the street under their lightings. Confessions, the time stops at this moment and the world fades away to the universe leaving them behind.
- The beauty which is different from the one of the day fills out the street at night for what we need to keep inside.
A day is too short for them. They visit not only cafes but also lovely fancy shops, luxurious galleries, trendy fashion shops and unique accessory shops to give presents to each other. They feel excited quite a long imagining what they received before unwrapping them. They walk together alongside the beautiful walkway of Tancheon Stream leaving the glamorous lights behind.
Tancheon Stream which flows behind Jeongja-dong Cafe Street is something like an end to complete a romantic day.
The stream bears lightings from the street and is like giving other gifts to lovers walking alongside the stream. They will meet a new cafe street called Tancheon Streamside Cafe Street. The street looks a little bit chic compared to Jeongja-dong Cafe Street but it will remain as a memory in their hearts.
