  • We probably did most of our shopping here. There are so many stores along the Ewha Womans University street. The deals are amazing as well! 
  • You might think that a women's university would be strict with men entering. I was wrong. Many flock to Ewha for its bizarre, truly one of a kind architecture. I'm into building styles and was taken aback by what Ewha campus had to offer. I didn't go deep into the campus but the entrance was enough to amaze me. It's not just a university, but also a shopping district, complete with restaurants. Truly an amazing place.
  • If you're planning a trip to seoul, i guess you cannot miss this place even though there's no public access into the school buildings. Nonetheless, there's still tonnes of shopping around the area, and you get to see the cool school compound that Running Man was filming at. Lovely school I must say :)
  • Slightly overrated. There's nothing much about this place. It's just a university with many tourists snapping picture on one of the alley.
  • Very beautiful university, like the way the design it and walking in the campus is very agreeable and enjoyable
  • There are more women than men here, obviously. A very nice campus. Also many shops just outside the U.
