Cafe culture in Korea: Hello Kitty cafe and Cafe Drama

Finally, I shall introduce the last 2 cafes that I have been to during my trip~~

3) Hello Kitty Cafe

I know a lot of blogs have already introduced Hello Kitty cafe so I’ll just cut it short!

Its a double storey pink cafe located in Hongdae! The building itself is already cuteeeeIMG_0899

Not only the latte but the cakes are also Hello Kittified lol, its a cafe that no Hello Kitty fan doesnt know!

4) Cafe Drama

Who loves to play dress up?

At this cafe… you can dress up as drama characters from 주몽 Jumong, 궁 goong etc. mostly historical-type drama.

There are also wedding dresses for couples to choose from.

and so…. i chose a princess hanbok. Of course… it isnt cheap. The rental for this hanbok is 45000won inclusive of shoes and hair styling. On top of that I need to pay for a compulsory drink too :S

Oh… I refused to let the person style my hair because i wanted to keep my fringe. lol, and now i kinda regret it :S

But its worth it! The Hanbok (traditional korean costume) is really beautiful and whole cafe is filled with different background themes for you to take photos, photos and more photos!

One disadvantage for this cafe is… they will only take a few shots for you with your own camera. Professional photography will cost you like 100,000won? I forgot the pricing but I know its extremely costly. I went there alone…. so I really had a hard time finding angles to take pictures of myself. At this moment…. I spotted a Japanese who was also alone. So we became friends and started helping each other take pictures haha.

We had huge communication problem because she could only speak Japanese. So we used a lot of hand signs and basic word by word English to communicate. We even went shopping together after that. Haha i really love traveling alone. You met all sorts of people and problems along the way but its exciting and always full of surprises!
