aA The Design Museum @ Hongdae. I can’t really recommend you where to go because MOST of the Cafe’s in Hongdae are pretty and are priced at the same range and have yummy drinks all in all. but it’s right at the end of the Hongdae Road near that SangSangMadang area crossing the famous Ddeokbokki shop and turn left then right.

this place is HUGE. like HUGE. very spacious. there are 2 types of cafes. one are the huge ones like this one. another type are the small cozy little ones which I can assure you that they’re real good places to hang out at as well.

there’s a thing about cafes in Korea that it has turned into a culture where people go to cafes after dinner to have more chats. because nobody actually sits at the dining table for hours just to talk. but the thing that I hate about this culture is… the price of 1 drink can cost as much (or more) than a cheaper dinner not in a place too fancy but decent.

very very nice interior yes?

it’s like a huge bungalow turned cafe. Steve brought us here as he said this is his favourite cafe in Hongdae as it is huge and quiet. a lot of room. but since it’s placed at a pretty secluded area.. there aren’t too many people =D.

pear juice. from literal boiled pear. very fragrant and you can tell they do not include much sugar in it. very natural. 6,000won. you can get Kongbul, a meal with bean sprouts and pork bulgogi for 5,500won. and it is served in a pretty restaurant as well. D=!!!!!!

the huge windows reminds me of UK. eventhough I have never been there. from movies alright?! my camera hates me, always putting me out of focus. which is why sometimes I have more pictures of a place rather than me because whenever someone takes a picture for me, the success rate is pretty low. U________U.

    Thank you. I’m going to see BoA’s concert there in 3 weeks. I’ll try to stop by. Sounds like a nice cafe. Pretty pricy pear juice at 6000 won.

    Jamie Liew Reply:

    wow so jealous! I would love to but too expensive. T_T. 6000won is average price for a cafe drink in Korea. T_______T.

    She is the person who got me into Kpop and really admire her. SM is offering a special global package to international fans so I could not miss her concert! ^^ I love Hongdae! Thank you for the review. Do they kick you out of the cafe if you are done with your drink? What if you want to stay and talk?

    Jamie Liew Reply:

    hehehe she was my first Korean idol =D. oh god I want too T_T. how much is it. =(. just don’t finish your drink. they won’t mind =). you are paying so much for the drink anyway. =D.

  8. Derek says:

    The tickets I think are 88,000 – 99,000 KRW. But the Global Package total for me was $728 USD. Includes hotel, transportation, and some activity. If I wind up with an extra ticket I can take you. haha.

    I’ll drink it very very slow! ^^
