Warning: This entry is image-heavy. 🙂
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.
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.
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. 😉
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.
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)
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.
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. 🙂
It’s a good decision going here because it was where our first Seoul autumn photos were taken. 😉
A little more of our photos HERE. (Errr… These were the last ones, though.)
