I haven’t been able to keep up with my e-mails lately. I’ve been receiving questions on how to go here and there. Instead of replying to each one, I decided to create a section on how to go to certain places.
I visited the location of the Korean drama “1st Shop of Coffee Prince” (starring Yoon Eun Hye and Gong Yoo) last May with new friends Angela and Tesha.
If you’re planning to visit the location of the drama, go there on a weekday afternoon. Their coffee is expensive so bring at least 8,000 won. Now for the directions:
1. Take the subway to Hongik University station on line 2 (green line).
2. Get off and exit gate 4.
3. Notice the “Seven Springs Restaurant”? Turn right at that corner. Walk straight.
4. Turn left at the third corner. Turn right and walk some more.
If my directions aren’t clear, just refer to the map below 😀 Follow the red line (or is it maroon?)
It takes about 5-10 minutes to go there by foot or about 530 meters. At the coffee shop, remember to ask for souvenirs – postcards and business cards are free! Oh, there’s also a car repair service right across the coffee shop. You’ll see the car lifts from the outside.
