If you're looking for a place to visit near the Konkuk University station, I highly recommend Common Ground. It is a huge complex facility built out of several shipping containers.
There are shops, cafes, restaurants, and bookshops all in one convenient location. There are often temporary pop-up stores set up, so there is always something exciting to do. You can snap a lot of beautiful pictures with your friends and family, as there are many picturesque photo zones available.
Common ground is located only 200 meters from Exit 6 of Konkuk University Station. It is immediately visible if you exit the subway station and go straight ahead.
Approximately two hundred big containers create a one-of-a-kind setting for a wide range of activities. The rugged look and feel of the container fits in well with the modern vibe.
Even on a Thursday, when I visited, there were a lot of people.

When I visited in September, the Absolut Vodka pop-up store was opened.
This was the day's one of the busiest photo spots.
1st floor: Fashion / Accessories / Bakery Cafe
2nd floor: Street Casual / Lifestyle
3rd floor: Restaurant / Cafe
Absolut's temporary pop-up store fills the ground floor's central corridor at the moment. It looked like a lot of fun, with activities like how to make cocktails.
Several shops might be found nearby.
Life Four Cuts
You can also have a good time here playing darts, arcade games, and toy claw machines.
A well-known bakery-café can also be found there. I've been here previously, and they offer excellent bread and coffee of many varieties.
You will also find a popular health & beauty store Olive Young on the 1st level. I frequently shop there even when I have no particular needs.
2F (Clothing & Accesseries)
The second level included numerous excellent clothing boutiques and a vintage shop. You can also find something you like at the Vintage shop if you look closely enough.
If you're looking for a cute stationery store, I highly recommend Butter. Many goods are available for purchase.
3F (Restaurants & Cafes)
The third floor is where you'll find the eateries and coffee shops.
Even though I had been there before, I didn't know that there was so many lovely restaurants and cafes on the third floor.
Numerous terrace seatings were available.
If you are hungry while shopping, you can stop by the cafe for some food and coffee. This is one of the benefits of a complex facility.
The Yellow (European kitchen) was a lovely place with outside seating. On the third level, you'll find a bridge that provides direct access to the Street Market.
A massive Nike store occupies both 1F & 2F of Street Market.
On the third floor, you'll find this adorable bookstore called Index Shop. It's not just a bookstore; it's also a café, so you can take a rest there with your book and a cup of coffee.
The OLO apparel store is located in the back of the square. There are tons of trendy garments available at reasonable prices.
You can find many good restaurants, shops, and entertainment options at Common Ground, which is conveniently located between the Konkuk University station and Seongsu.
