K-BFFs in Seoul – Day 1: What is 120 Meters? (Highlight: Yeouido Area)

Warning: This entry is image-heavy. πŸ™‚

Of course, fangirling is intentionally a part of our Seoul itinerary that’s why we made it a point to visit at least one celebrity place. It was a pretty easy choice since we are Super Junior fans and our other K-BFF, Lei, had a special request for us. We went to Handel and Gretel, which is owned by Super Junior’s Yesung.

The street outside the subway.

The area is not really busy in the afternoon.

A shoot is happening while we were on our way there; for a drama, perhaps? Maybe Yan and I’s backs were caught by the camera (because we innocently crossed the street when the film is rolling) and we could credit that as our first claim-to-fame (silly :P). So we decided to make a round around the area just to reach the cafe.

Kebers with the shooting. We still pass.
There are lots of restaurants around the area.

Detour...

Upon arriving to the place, there was a group of young girls and a table with fellow Filipinos (a mom and daughter and the mom’s friend, we guessed). It was easy to spot kababayans. πŸ˜‰

Due to much excitement, we ordered the first thing we liked on the menu. As always, it was green tea for me. Gah! If only we have scanned the menu a little longer, we could have made a better order.

It's all Yesung as you can see. We aren't complaining, though. ^^
I look exhausted, I'm sorry.
Yan looks ecstatic, right? Hahaha!
Sorry, busy ako. πŸ˜›
This is for our other K-BFF. Happy birthday, Lei! (Oops! I had a handwriting boo-boo over there.)
Yan wants a picture with Yesung e. πŸ˜›
It's Yesung's mom at the back. She's super nice. πŸ™‚

Handel and Gretel is such a cozy place; and what more, you get to see a lot of Yesung. Another thing, his mom is really friendly (I get to have two greetings. I didn’t dare ask for a photo, though. I’m shy like that. :P)

The place is worth coming back to.
Pahabol!!! Haha! I discovered the first photo while I was browsing Tumblr. It's the exact same place where we seated. πŸ˜› I'm shallow, I know. Pardon the fangirls.

It’s still a bit early and we don’t have anything else to do for the moment. So we decided to head to Yeouido Park since it’s just a few blocks away.

Yan is having a good time!

The park is a great place if you just want to relax, stroll around, and breathe. It’s very peaceful even if there is quite a number of people. If you can bike, the area is wide enough for it. πŸ™‚

You can rent bikes to tour the place. Sadly, I don't. *pouts*
A lot of offices and skyscrapers surround the area.

It’s a good decision going here because it was where our first Seoul autumn photos were taken. πŸ˜‰

People everywhere!
The colors are just beautiful!

A little more of our photos HERE. (Errr… These were the last ones, though.)

National Assembly Station (Subway station line 9, exit 4)

Yeouido Park is just a walk around the area.
