It’s actually better to go to Gyeongbokgung Station (Line 3) and then either take a taxi or bus (either the 1711 or 1020 to Seoul Performing Arts High School stop) than Hongje Station. I used to live just around the corner (this location is actually how I would walk to work!) and taking the bus was the easiest/most accessible way to get to more popular/central areas in Seoul!
thanks very much Kate! appreciate the input, it’s very helpful 🙂 we’ve updated it accordingly!
