How and where the Seoul stampede happened

The steep, narrow streets of Itaewon were once home to Seoul’s red light district. Serving a sprawling US military base next door, the neighborhood offered cheap beer, counterfeits and a women’s business for sale.

But over the past two decades, Itaewon has been cleaned up. By the time the US military left the South Korean capital in 2019, it already had a reputation for being an open and diverse neighborhood known for its espresso bars and independent fashion houses.
