Seongsu-dong is a dong, or neighbourhood, of Seongdong-gu in Seoul, South Korea. It is further subdivided into Seongsu-dong 1-ga and Seongsu-dong 2-ga, and is served by Ddukseom Station and Seongsu Station on Seoul Subway Line 2 and by Seoul Forest Station on the Bundang Subway Line. Its most notable attraction is Seoul Forest, a public park. The neighborhood has become popular in recent years for its array of cafes and restaurants, many of which have been set up in repurposed factories and old residential buildings, earning it the nickname “The Brooklyn of Seoul”. There are also various stores built inside repurposed shipping containers.
