• PP Seoul

    During one of my Korea trips last year, I went to this rooftop cafe/bar that opened into the wee hours of the night: PP Seoul. It gives off the vibes that reminds me of PS Cafe. Let’s start off with the interior. They wrote PP Seoul in traditional Chinese. So cute! And look at the window decal on why they have the letters PP in their cafe name. This is their indoor counter and bar. Their outdoor view is amazing. I would recommend going earlier to grab the outdoor seat for a stunning view of the city. My ordered drink. Even the menu and marble table top are pretty. I went…

  • Goblin: Sunny’s BBQ Olive Chicken Cafe [02]

    Hello everyone! I was nursing my emptiness after drama Goblin ended. There really isn’t any drama I look forward to as much. OCN’s Voice drama is not bad though. Similar to Goblin on tvN, this drama Voice on OCN is also broadcasted on cable tv. You need to pay to watch in Korea. Naturally the drama gets less hype and traction, compared to drama like Descendants of the Sun that was broadcasted on KBS (free channel). I would suggest watching if you wish to void the emptiness in your heart like me. In episode 9 of Goblin, the four main characters met for the first time as a group in Sunny’s new fried…

  • Goblin: Sunny’s BBQ Olive Chicken Cafe [01]

    Sunny is the very beautiful BBQ chicken shop owner who hired Euntak as a part-timer though the shop didn’t seem to have a lot of business. Here we are to see where Sunny’s original BBQ Olive Chicken Cafe is. This is the store that Sunny owns at the start of the drama. Later on, she moved the store to one with larger area space. I’ll be sharing the guide to the larger store in my later posts. This shop is a branch in Gangnam district. Fortunately, the shop is fairly easy to arrive at. How to get to BBQ Olive Chicken Cafe Hop on the subway to Daecheong Subway Station (대청역) and take exit…

  • Goblin: First Encounter

    I am on a roll! Haha Do you count this as part of new year resolution, to update this space more often and hopefully it would count towards less money wasted on the cost to maintain this domain? Again in episode 1, the scene where Kim Shin meets Euntak for the first time in the rain. I’m sorry I went a little overboard with Kim Shin’s close up screencaps. His eyes can talk and I can stare into them forever. (Coughs) Anyway this scene was filmed outside Duksung Girls’ High School (덕성여자고등학교). How to get to 덕성여자고등학교 Hop on the subway to Anguk Subway Station (안국역) and take exit 1. This should…

  • Goblin: Grim Reaper’s Tea House

    Happy New Year everyone! I know I have been neglecting this space for a bit. I was hooked up on dramas, as usual. Unfortunately the dramas I was watching, either doesn’t motivate me to move my lazy ass to search for drama scenes, or there isn’t anything significant for me to search for. Take for example, the drama Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim. Almost the entire drama is filmed within the set. Ok, enough of my excuses. Now, let’s move on to my recent favourite drama – Goblin: The Lonely and Great God. The name is too long. I shall call it Goblin from here onwards. If you ask me, this…

  • Lucky Romance: Nolsoop Cafe

    I’ve recently caught on another Korean drama called Lucky Romance (운빨로맨스), starring Hwang Jungeum and Ryoo Joonyeol. Yes, Ryoo Joonyeol who also acted in drama Reply 1988. So glad to see him having a drama of his own as a leading actor. While I was rooting on Park Bogum in Reply 1988 despite how cute Ryoo Joonyeol was, I’m so happy to be able to gush and cheer on him whole heartedly in this drama. In the latest episode (episode 6), Joonyeol discreetly (not) followed Jungeum to a cafe and realised she was actually meeting Gary to convince him to be part of the game they are developing. I did some research on the cafe…

  • BBQ Charcoal Grilled Eel

    I am deeply missing the streets of Korea and the cold crisp air in April. A time where any day is a good day to have barbecue. The weather is always ready for some intensive grilling and it just depends on what you chooses to put on the grill in front of you. Throwback to April some years ago, I visited the store below for barbecue eel opened by father of CNBlue’s drummer Minhyuk. Minhyuk stars as Jo Haneul in the Korean drama Entertainer. This drama is now showing on SBS every Wednesday and Thursday, 10pm (KST). There are sticky notes and pens available for you to leave messages. Charcoal…

  • Reply 1988: Ddeokbokki at 코스모스 분식

    Reply 1988 is another good drama from TvN that got me hooked.  This drama stars Park Bogum, who is from the same company as Song Joongki. Somehow this 1988 series outshines the 1997 and 1994 series, I reckon. In the final and last episode, episode 20, female lead Deoksun (acted by Hyeri from Girl’s Day) reunites with her close friends, Mik and Jahyun after 6 years. They met up at this ddeokbokki place. The food looks good and isn’t expensive. How to get to 코스모스 분식 Hop on the subway to Gusan Station (구산역) and take exit 3. Come out from the exit and walk straight. Walk towards the direction of the…

  • Descendants of the Sun: Song Joongki’s Treat at 한라산

    With the high viewership rating and all the love received from public, Song Joongki gave a treat to the entire drama team of Descendants of the Sun on 01 April. Due to the overwhelming amount of people crowding the place, they even changed a restaurant at the very last minute. The media still caught hold of the news and flocked to the new restaurant in no time. Look at the crowd. Song Joongki came out for a while to greet the media and allowed photographs to be taken. Thanks to the media photos, I managed to find the address of the restaurant they visited! The barbeque restaurant opens til late and…

  • Descendants of the Sun: 서래갈매기

    Have you watched episode 13 of Descendants of the Sun? After Yoo Sijin and Seo Daeyoung returned to Seoul from Urk, they got 3 days leave which they decided to spend their time drinking. The place where they struggled to stay awake from 72 hours of drinking is situated in Seoul! I was screen capturing the scenes of this episode and went a little overboard because I simply couldn’t resist the drunk and cute Song Joongki. (Coughs) This place is fairly easy to reach, as compared to the dal.komm coffee cafes I introduced previously. How to get to 서래갈매기 Hop on the subway to Hoegi Station and take exit 1. Come out…
