Blacklink real review
Excellent service. Driver very professional and polite.
I'm from the UK, and it being South Korea, I was just not sure how reliable the service would be, but was pleasantly surprised and totally satisfied with everything. Would happily book again. They confirm the driver and the vehicle fairly quickly, and give you a phone number as well. Price was reasonable, too. Full marks for the service !
My family of four used Blacklink for transfer from Incheon to Seoul, and also on the return from our hotel to the airport. Drivers were very punctual, helpful with our luggage, and friendly. As first time visitors to Seoul, we felt comfortable and safe with Blacklink. We definitely recommend Blacklink!
Our driver was fantastic. Very professional arrived way ahead of time. I will definitely use again.
Blacklink is very comfortable to use as a transportation from airport to your lodging or vice versa. Drivers are very friendly as well. In addition, they do arrive before you arrive which is very admirable. We hope to use this service again on our next trip back here in Korea.

Zandari Festa is named after 'Zandari', the old name for the Hongdae area street. 'Zandari' implies small bridge, and the festivals' ambition is also to be a bridge between the artists and audiences around the local indie music scene. Every Fall, it is held over 3 days in the pre-scheduled hosting live clubs. The festival encourages bands to invite themselves, artists are also encouraged to take part in planning and promoting the shows they play in.
Live Club Day
Since March 2001, 'Club Day' started as a wristband-powered event which allows entry to more than a dozen clubs for the price of one. After 2007, 'Sound Day' also launched together with the indie music concert venues. During 2008 through early 2009 they were suspend due to high levels of violence and disturbances by US army soldiers and underage individuals. They reopened again but came to close soon in January 2011 (as the 117th Club Day), mainly due to the dispute over the distribution of profits between popular live/dance clubs and other budget ones.
After a four-year break, in January 2015, six live clubs established the 'Live Club Cooperative' and with other clubs, they resumed the 'Live Club Day' on February 27. The 'Live Club Day' is held on the last Friday of every month. The ticket system is the same as before, one can get access to multiple clubs for a variety of genres including rock, jazz, hip hop and electronic with one ticket.
Street Art Exhibition
During early 1990s, students from the College of Fine Arts at Hongik University began to decorate the streets, walls, and roads around the college. Their efforts were soon joined by many artists from across the country and the first 'Street Art Festival' was held in 1993. Every year, students of Hongik University and neighbor artists join to produce diversity of visual arts on Hongdae streets like graffiti wall painting, installation arts and performances.
'Hongdaeap Artmarket Freemarket' is held on 'Hongdae Playground', that is in front of the main gate of Hongik University. It holds on weekends, from March to November at 13:00 to 18:00 by the host of the nonprofit organization 'Living and Art Creative Center (일상예술창작센터) since 2002. The flea markets are called "Free Market" on Saturdays and "Hope Market" on Sundays. They are fledgling craft markets of things made by students and street artists. Other culture markets have been influenced by this original playground Freemarket and open randomly around the Hongdae area.
