Bats, Kittens, and Mittens

the 1980’s marked the beginning of the era of professional baseball in Korea and the sport reached a new level of popularity when pitcher Chan Ho Park made his debut for the LA Dodgers in 1994.. i found out that baseball is the biggest sport in Korea when i watched Running Man episode 172 and 173 with Ryu Hyun Jin, a professional baseball pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers as the guest. Ryu was the first South Korean to serve as the starting pitcher of a Major League Baseball postseason game.

when snoopy meet rilakkuma •ᴥ•

do you still remember when we first launch our Rilakkuma Michy back in autumn from Seoul? where we team up with one korean leather shop (i will never forget our meeting over iced americano that day ☕️☕️☕️) when it comes to travelling back to Seoul, as fun as it is, there should really be an entirely separate saying for what time does..!! those days span the period of time when we were beads and charms hunting and running from one meeting to another meeting then thinking of the design then launch em on the web then receiving your emails that never fails to put a smile on my face •ᴥ• so little by little, project by project, meeting by meeting, prayer by prayer, we are well on our way to making this hanarupark completely “us”

i went to Capi Capi Loom Loom in Seoul to have my coffee during fall season and this small shop with lots of rilakkuma stuff inspired me a lot to design our Dominique Bracelet in rilakkuma theme and i can’t remember how many Rilakkuma Dominique that we design and send out until today ^^ starting from Rilakkuma sipping coffee, Rilakkuma on a dango date, picking strawberries with Korilakkuma and so much more.. thanks all for the love ෆ

Rilakkuma means bear in relaxed mood.. true to his name, he enjoys relaxing and his fave things include sleeping, lying around, watching television, listening to music, and soaking in hot springs and his fave foods are dango, pancakes, omurice and custard pudding. Rilakkuma is often accompanied by Korilakkuma “a mysterious white bear cub” who loves strawberries, apple and cherries.. they named her Korilakkuma because she looks like little Rilakkuma (“ko” means a little child in Japanese) And last one is Kiiroitori, a yellow chick who lives at Kaoru’s house. Kiiroitori means yellow bird in Japanese. Kiiroitori is basically the opposite of Rilakkuma because of the bird’s hard working nature and love of cleaning..

a trip to Rilakkuma Cafe (Capi Capi Loom Loom) and Dango Jip inspired our new designs a lot ^.^  you will see a lot of dango as you head to our store..!!! from Dominique to Kaoru.. from Madison to Marjorie.. many of you asked where is this Dango Jip? 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 ^^ thanks to Ken Lee for the nice catch!

as i travel a lot to Seoul, i passed by Charlie Brown Cafe many times at incheon airport and sometimes i stop by to grab my coffee before boarding.. and i’ve been following @snoopygrams on instagram and this Charlie Brown dog never fail to make me laugh with his story ^^ what i love about this comic is Snoopy also imagined himself as a self-proclaimed “famous writer” although his extremely short “novels” are never published and the two-paragraph one that managed to get published failed to sell >.< his character is that of a dog who pretends to be a person or who sometimes forgets that he is a dog.. Snoopy loves root beer and pizza and two things Snoopy dislikes are listening to balloons being squeezed and cats.. but he’s a very strong character. he can win or lose, be a disaster, a hero or anything and yet it all works out..

and today we launch our Rilakkuma and Snoopy designs together on the web..!! as you head to our store you will meet Rilakkuma holding dango while Snoopy enjoying his root beer with Woodstock and Korilakkuma munching on cherries.. holiday mode ON ^___________^

pink hood bunny ^^

it all started when i bought a “My Melody” clamshell phone for my niece at Lotte Mart, Seoul.. then this rabbit who always wears a red or pink hood that covers her ears stuck in my head for weeks >.< then i decided to launch her as our limited edition today ^^

Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset

My Melody was first released in 1975 and according to The New York Times, this character is moderately successful in terms popularity but shows no signs of reaching the global popularity of Hello Kitty (aigoooo..) though she can’t beat the popularity of Hello Kitty we all still adore her and that’s one of the reason why we create a story with My Melody for our Dominique Pair today

with the launch of today’ designs we hope that people will notice not just me but my Lord.. when the work of my hands makes people smile, thats where my heart is and using the talent that He gives me through hanarupark to bring smiles to people’ faces, God smiles too ^^ true that each person is given something to do that shows who God is..
