Itaewon at Night with Fujifilm X-Pro1

Itaewon (Korean: 이태원, 梨泰院, [itʰɛwʌn]) is a city district, in Yongsan-gu, Seoul, South Korea. It is served by Seoul Subway Line 6 via Itaewon, Noksapyeong and Hanganjin stations. About 22,000 people reside in the district and it is a popular area for residents of Seoul, tourists, and U.S. Military personnel in Korea. source : wikipedia

It is a trendy night spot with lots of restaurants and bars. I was there during summer last year. Just some night shots captured after dinner.

All shots were shot in RAW with Fujifilm X-Pro1 with Fujinon XF 18mm f2 R. The RAW files were converted with Capture One Pro with further processing in Photoshop CS5 before final output to the web.

  1. hi Roland – pity that Itaewon is such an expat area though! – completely unlike the rest of Seoul (apart from Insadong etc).. Damn shame you appear to have missed out on eating at O Kitchen which is one of the best restaurants I have eaten in a while. It was only metres away from some of your shots! I got the place listed on Trip Advisor, as shamefully they weren’t, and they now have quite a few comments:
    my (relatively bad i.e. not fancy Fuji and RAW etc) compact cam shots are under mrmink at very end

    • Hi Michael,

      Well, I was at Itaewon for one night only, took some photos, that’s all. I have been to other parts of Seoul and the post is not meant to be representative of the whole of Seoul.

      During the short time I was at Itaewon, and I have actually eaten at O kitchen. It was surprisingly good and the price was also extremely reasonable. I was very pleasantly surprised. I will probably do a post on O kitchen separately later.

      • Roland, glad you have eaten there – as I say I went to Itaewon especially to eat there due to Rough Guide comments. It is certainly way cheaper than hi-end HK or Sydney!
