K-BFFs in Seoul – Day 2: What is “A” Lifestyle? (Highlight: Hongdae)

Hongdae is the next stop for day 2. The place is within the same vicinity as Hongkik University so somehow, expect a lot of university students. (While walking, we saw more middle/high school students, though.)


Our main intention of going here is to check some quirky coffee shops – one thing which Hongdae is known for. Here are the few ones we went to:

Hello Kitty Cafe
Lots of those who go here are students. Me and Yan would like to try every coffee shop we went to but yeah, too much caffeine is bad for the health so we just took photos.
Coffee Prince - However, this one's just a branch which was beside the Hello Kitty Cafe. The one which was featured in the drama is still very far from where we are - and we can walk no more.
The menu in Coffee Prince
The Bau Haus door - This is a place where my sister, Mica, and I would love to go to. Yan doesn't like animals. Period. :

We opted not to wait for the Hongdae night life, too, which many people tagged as full of music and life.ย  If you want to have some more fun in the area, there is also a trick-eye museum that you can go to. We didn’t go there, too, because we were meeting one of my friends tomorrow and that was one of the places we originally planned going to.

5pm and we can't wait for the Hongdae night life. Here's the scene during day time. Shops and students. ๐Ÿ™‚
Some "alleys' around the area
Is-tu-dents eb-ri-wer ๐Ÿ˜›

So walking, walking, we opted to find other subway options. In the verge of getting lost, a lady found us and immediately asked us what were we looking for (I tell you, we were really surrounded by angels here) and pointed us to the nearest subway station.

Here's the intersection where we got lost. ๐Ÿ˜› Thankful "savors" come to us from everywhere. :') #grateful

We really need to go home! It’s time to sacrifice fashion for us to heal our feet. ๐Ÿ˜›

Going to Hongdae:

There are lots of options in getting to the area. You can either take Line 2 and drop off at Hongkik University Station or Hapjeong station; or take Line 6 and drop off at Hapjeong station. It really depends on where you’d want to go. (Anyway, we dropped off Hongkik University. โ˜บ)
