cafe hopping in seoul 🇰🇷

sure lattes and cappuccinos are everybody fave but Korea added some extra fun to cafes with some really unique themes. just in Hongdae, alone, there were countless cafes >.<  i tried to visit as many as i could but every time i walked around, more cafes just kept popping up!

whether you’re a big fan of Rilakkuma or just adore the cutest cake on your plate, then Seoul is the place to go :p

i was told that there’s a lot of cute cafes around Hongdae but let me tell you something, there’s cafes EVERYWHERE!!!

it’s my first time doin this cafe hopping + another photoshoot with Ken Lee ^^ it takes a lot of walking, subway and taxi in between.. from alley to alley and not to mention the rain but i learned my lesson, so no more 😝✌️

Let’s hop hop hop..!!!

Capi Capi Loom Loom (Rilakkuma Cafe) located in Sungshin Women University Station line 4 exit 1, turn right after u see KB bank and walk straight until you see a cross junction then turn left, walk for a minute, the cafe is on the right side.. They also sell lots of Rilakkuma goodies in their small shop..

Hanarupark 112 Capi Capi Loom Loom that’s how they say Rilakkuma in Korea :p

Dango is a Japanese dumpling and sweet made from mochiko (rice flour) ^^ Many of you asked where is this Dango Jip? Hongdae? Here’s how to get there: go to Sangsu Subway Station line 6 exit 2 then walk about 2 blocks until you reach a one way street, turn right, Dango Jip will be on your left ^^ Homey menu and cozy place for sure..

Chocolat Yum located in Hongdae, pretty much right before Hongdae Park.. i have a conclusion that Koreans are crazy over coffee and cookies.. other than kimchi, their second love is coffee :p
