last month when my best friend (Megu) visited me before I left Korea for good, I was invited to Grevin to tour around their museum. and it was really beyond my expectations! and oh, that day I found out that Brad Pitt’s actually taller than me! (since I am quite a tall girl for Asian standards)

situated just right outside Euljiro-1-ga’s exit 1, it was very easy to locate. and *quite* nearby there’s this famous cafe called Hanyakbang Coffee.

so why you should go to Grevin? well, because it’s the only one in Asia. other’s are located wayyy too far from Asia.

and at a random corner, there was like a whole section dedicated for a famous baseball player in Korea. and you can even try tossing balls yourself! (I missed all of mine though T_T.)

another fun fact: the kids I teach English had always said that I have ET fingers, because it’s really long and slender ._. in a very weird way.

trying to fit in with Rambo.

first time betting in a “casino” and no money was involved hahaha. I really like Grevin because of the fun-filled activities they prepared. hence it ain’t just a boring wax museum.

DSC04872 copy

all hail King Sejong!

DSC04874 copy

thank you for inventing Hangeul. I kid you not, you can learn how to read and write Korean in just a few hours all thanks to the great King Sejong. because he made it so simple and easy to learn! also, the purpose of the huge revamp was a part of his plans on getting rid of illiteracy and it worked so well!

DSC04887 copy

time for some math class with le geniuses.

DSC04892 copy

the person that everyone look up to. you don’t have to be good in school to be a genius; that’s what Einstein taught me.

DSC04925 copy

thank you Ghandi, for all that you have done!

DSC05026 copy

a picture with Christiano Ronaldo is a must!

DSC05052 copy

no joke but my friend Peter looks exactly like Park Ji Sung.

DSC05075 copy

I absolutely failed in basket ball. but still a little better than Megu xD.

DSC05086 copy

Park Chan Ho the most famous baseball player in Korea (or the world? D=)

DSC05088 copy

DSC05120 copy

DSC05150 copy

some random “trick eye” art pieces.

DSC05156 copy

I kind of liked this part of the museum because..

DSC05157 copy

you get to learn how they make them wax figures, and also turn yourself into a digital wax figure!

DSC05160 copy

it’s really scary without colour tho =S.

DSC05164 copy

so.. this is how it looked like, although I look completely ridiculous.

DSC05170 copy

OHAI! that’s me and Psy! I look so scary hahaha. I know.

DSC05176 copy

Marilyn Monroe, the iconic artist who’s in every single wax museum haha.

DSC05179 copy

I was shocked to see Van Gough! never actually knew how he looked like, but I could recognize that this is him right away!

DSC05182 copy

and a random photobooth in the middle. there are really a lot of activities to do in this museum!

DSC05220 copy

welcome to my emo world.

DSC05224 copy

some more iconic people! do you know who’s that on the bottom right? (p i c a s o!)

DSC05245 copy

the person whom I looked up to the most in Korea; Andre Kim. he makes the most talented fashion designer I’ve ever seen, and he absolutely does not give a **** to what other people say about him, as long as he thinks that it’s fashionable.

DSC05248 copy

Tyra Banks and Lady Diana

DSC05258 copy

with the global oppa; GD.

DSC05263 copy

nice.. uh, bra.

DSC05273 copy

like seriously, do I look like her? I got like at least 30 comments on me looking like her when the drama “doctors” came out. .__.. *I wish*

DSC05281 copy

the last section was totally for K-DRAMA. they had a set where you can even see yourself on the big screen! that was pretty fun haha.

well that’s all! I think I only managed to take pictures of less than half of all the famous people morphed into these realistic wax figurines. there were so many and I was absolutely not expecting that. like I said, it wasn’t just wax figures but there were a lot of other little fun activities to do too! so I think that it’s absolutely worth a visit if you find yourself in Seoul! expect to spend around 2 hours in there and I would urge you to arrive as early as possible to avoid the crowd!

that’s all for now!
