Seoul, South Korea (K.Art)


오랜마니에요 여러분! 나 보고싶었어요? 나는 블로깅을 많이 보고싶었어요.
Just practicing my Korean.
I recently went to Seoul (again, for the 5th time) but I am still not done with my winter experience. I wasn't able to explore much this last trip anyway because I was sick the entire time! I only got to see Myeongdong and DMZ (because we pre-booked a tour). Anyway, next store I will feature for the winter in Seoul series is K.Art. I looked deep in the black hole that is the world wide web but there were hardly any article that pointed me to what I was looking for. There were lots of articles you can find with lists of stores where you can buy Kpop albums and posters but I was looking for light sticks. I didn't want to purchase online because they were overpriced and I am impatient so waiting for them to hold their concert in Manila is not an option. K.Art is the only place I found that sold them after reading so many articles.

You can only imagine how thrilled I was to visit this store. At the entrance I already saw my favorite Kpop group ever - BIGBANG - and things could not have gotten better when I saw the standees of my favorite girl group 2ne1. It was heartbreaking for me when they suddenly decided to disband last year so seeing them (even just the standees) was sort of nostalgic. But, though I was delighted to see these standees, the store did not live up to my expectations. There were a lot of merchandise but still not the ones I was looking for (except for the BIGBANG light stick which I bought). I wanted to get BTS' light stick as well but it was not available. I also wanted to buy pins but I could not find any. They were mostly selling albums as well which I did not intend to purchase because I have spotify anyway. Nonetheless, it was worth the trip because I now feel like a legit VIP!
