The Hangang River runs across Seoul and divides the capital city into Gangnam, literally “South of the river,” and Gangbuk, or “North of the river.” 
The traditional Gangbuk region shares its history with that of the Joseon Dynasty ― the nation’s final dynastic period ― stretching back over 600 years, while the modern Gangnam region is a much newer addition to Seoul and filled with commercial skyscrapers and the latest trends. All across Seoul however, you will find filling and great-tasting food at restaurants in its many unique alleyways.
