Seoul: Mullae Arts Village (문래예술공장 / 문래동 창작촌)


Just a few blocks away from Cafe 1953 With Audrey is Mullae Arts Village, which is an industrial area that has probably been made known as the film location of Avengers 2. I honestly do not know much about Mullae, but from what I’ve overheard while on my photowalk, this place reminds Koreans of Ikseondong, one of the hippest neighbourhoods in recent years.

There seems to be quite a few cafes and restaurants in the area, so I definitely see myself coming here again with friends. Directions to Mullae Arts Village at the end of this post. Meanwhile, enjoy the photos and captions! (Warning: Image heavy post.)
