Mouse Rabbit cafe 
Grand open on the 11th November 2012 by Yesung (Super Junior vocalist) & his brother. Take a wild guess how the cafe got its name?! Simple..it's goes by the owners' Chinese Zodiac. ^^
Rumour has it that ‘mouse’ & ‘rabbit’ refers to the zodiac signs of the Kim brothers. – ‘mouse’ for Yesung & ‘rabbit’ for Jongjin.
The owner with his first customer! Fellow band-mate- Eunhyuk

연대껍데기 8,000won BBQ meat buffet in Sinchon

Posted by Carrie Ang 2 comments Links to this post
Craving for some meat? Then head over to this All-you-can-eat Korean BBQ in Sinchon (신촌). It's called 연대껍데기 Yondae Kkeopdegi. Only 8,000KRW per person!!! The best part is the UNLIMITED refills of meat & other side dishes. It's pretty much a buffet style self service place, where you fill up the provided small plates with assorted 반찬 Banchan (Korean side dishes) and 고기 Gogi (meat) as your heart desires, and then you cook the meat yourself on tabletop grills.

Directions to KBS Station

Posted by Carrie Ang 2 comments Links to this post
Korean Broadcasting System (KBS) is South Korean radio and television network located in Yeouido. It is the home of the famous Korean Drama hits like Full House, Boys Over Flowers, Sungkyungkwan Scandal, Good Doctor and many more. I am an avid Korean drama fan, so visiting Seoul without coming here is a big no-no. And if you are also fond of KPop or Super Junior fan, KBS is a must-visit place in Korea. SuKiRa or Super Junior Kiss the Radio program is aired at KBS everyday at 10-12midnight.

Places to visit near Chungmuro Station + Chungmuro Pet Street

Posted by Carrie Ang 0 comments Links to this post
Chungmuro has been known as the street of culture, artists, and film industry. Chungmuro was named after Chungmugong, the posthumous title of Korean Admiral Yi Sun-shin, which means "martial subject of loyalty." The last syllable "ro" refers to road in Korean. Nowadays many film studios moved from Chungmuro to the Gangnam district, Chungmuro still symbolizes the Korean film industry and continues to be used as a metonymy for it.

Places of interest in Chungmuro:
  • Chungmuro Camera District
  • Daehan Cinema
  • Pet Street
  • Korea House
  • Namsangol Hanok Village

2PM has teamed up with Gangnam district and 'G+ Dream Project' to start a '2PM Zone' located at Apgujeong Rodeo Street in Gangnam which will only run for three months.

During an interview, Gangnam's reps stated,
2PM have been active in their overseas activities and have become one of Hallyu icons by successfully wrapping up their Asia tour, arena tour, and Tokyo dome tour. As representative artists who are receiving a lot of love from Asia, they have been selected as the first stars to take part in 'G+ Dream Project's 'G+ STAR ZONE'. Ahead of their comeback this May, we anticipate the synergy effect of 2PM and 'G+ Dream Project' to attract a big response."

This special zone is  a partnership between Gangnam district and Hallyu stars to give back to disadvantaged children through the 'G+ Dream Project'. Fan can take picture and in the same time donate here. The special zone made for HOTTESTs will be available for three months until July 31st.
Luckily for me, when I went there in mid September, it's still there! Yipee~~ ^^
