What to do in Hannam
Hannam sounds, more than a cultural space. You can find here different stores, a library and various dining options.
“Still Books” is a bookstore created by JOH, the publisher of Korea’s famous B MAGAZINE. To my pleasure, I can find here all the English editions of the B Magazine.
You can take your time and wander around the different selection of books and the crafted goods displayed in the store.
