Sinsadong Garosugil [신사동 가로수길] or Garosugil/Garosu-gil [가로수길/街路樹길] for short, which translates to ‘tree-lined street’, is a 700 meter long street lined with around 160 ginko trees located in Seoul’s neighborhood Sinsa [Sinsa-dong/신사동], in the Gangnam District [Gangnam/강남구].
Known today for its up-scale boutiques, galleries, restaurant and cafés, it’s also known as ‘Artist’s Street’ from the 1980s when art galleries and cultural facilities started to populate the area around the street. A decade later in the 1990s, young fashion designers moved into the area and made this street into the design street it is today. According to Visit Seoul.Net, since the 2010s a lot of existing shops relocated from this street to the backstreets, which let to “the emergence of Serosu-gil”, from a wide street (garo meaning width) to a long street (‘sero’ meaning ‘length’).
In 2012, this street was selected as one of 100 regular filming locations for movies and dramas by the Seoul Metropolitan Government and the Seoul Film Council, and featured in the brochure The Places In Seoul Cinema Fell in Love With (영화가 사랑한 서울 촬영지 100선).
