It's like a street club! with headphones! :))
No one is disturbed because of the loud music,
and everyone wearing headphones are having a fun experience very quietly... :)
It looks really fun to those passing by!!!
There're 20~30 clubs in Hongdae.
Hongdae clubs are quite casual, so you don't need to put on elegance suit or dress like some clubs in Gangnam.
