K-Star Road in Gangnam

Psy’s song “Gangnam Style” had been a worldwide hit but this is not the reason why I went to Gangnam. Of course, Gangnam is known for its upscale fashion and it is a shopping haven for the trendsetters. World-famous brand labels line up the streets of Apgujeong-dong which will make the fashionistas’ heartbeat faster.

That is a different story for a K-Pop fan like me. The huge yet cute and colorful statues (also called Gangnamdol) which represent K-Pop idol groups from different entertainment agencies along the K-Star Road are more interesting to look at! You will easily find this road upon exiting the subway. Be sure to drop by and take lots of picture with your favorite K-Pop group’s Gangnamdol before you resume your long walk towards the entertainment agencies of Cube, JYP, FNC and SM along Apgujeong-dong and Cheongdam-dong.
