This popular street is in the heart of downtown Chuncheon. Fast-food restaurants, movie theaters, and nightclubs all pack the streets of this hip area. This street was originally known as Joyang-dong Street. The current name, Myeong-dong Street, comes from Seoul’s hippest shopping district, Myeong-dong. The famous food street, with many tasty Dakgalbi restaurants is located right behind this shopping street. Jungang Market and Chuncheon’s underground shopping district are two of the most popular places here. The Jungang Market dates back to 1962 and quickly became the biggest general market around, with items ranging from Korea’s traditional garb of the hanbok to clothing for middle-aged people. The underground market area has plenty of places to eat and has shops selling clothing, handbags, shoes, and accessories. With around 300 shops, this market area is much larger and livelier than Myeong-dong Street.

* Several scenes from the popular drama Gyeoul Yeonga (Winter Sonata) were filmed here.

Located at Chuncheon's downtown Myeong-dong, Myeongdong Dakgalbi Street is lined with restaurants specializing in Chuncheon's famous dakgalbi (spicy stir-fried chicken) and makguksu (spicy buckwheat noodles). Due to a great number of poultry established in Chuncheon since long ago, dakgalbi naturally became a local favorite of the region.The history of Chuncheon dakgalbi streets goes back to over 50 years ago, when dakgalbi was first introduced as one of the menus listed at a small restaurant. Dakgalbi started to spread throughout the area during the 1980s, and has now become a menu served at many restaurants.

Due to the plentiful amount compared to its relatively low price, dakgalbi was initially popular among soldiers and college students. As dining out became a trend the 1990s, dakgalbi became a popular restaurant menu that brings reminiscence of the past, consequently becoming a dish that represents Chuncheon.
