In 1960s, there were a lot of private classes in this area. High-level private highschools were here so that there were at that time so the street was full of private classes. 

In 1970s, high-level private schools started to move to Gangnam area so the private schools so that the private classes has disappeared but due to the new high buildings are constructed, a lot of restaurants are started to be constructed in 1990s.
