Could this be the most interesting cafe you can visit?🤯
If you like interesting spaces or have heard of YND 239-20—the cartoon café that went viral last year, there’s now a bigger and arguably nicer second location that’s worth visiting.
Named YND 223-14 after the Korean address Yeon-Nam-Dong 223-14, this brand-new coffee spot is only a three-minute walk away from the original.
Owned by the company Greem, the cafés share a unique design concept created by founder and owner Eun-Jin Lee. Decked out like pen-drawn cartoons, these cafés blend reality and illusion together seamlessly—with white interiors creating a stark contrast with real and faux elements outlined in black, such as real tables, chairs, and mugs, plus illustrations of potted plants, tufted leather, flowers, art frames, wooden tiles, and a window with a peeking dog.
Given the fun-filled design and delightful use of optical illusion, it’s no wonder why the original café has quickly become “a must-visit for decor-loving Instagrammers".

🇰🇷 Street food at the oldest and largest market in Seoul // Fried #mandu is always a good idea🥟 and fresh #hotteok which is a chewy sweet pancake with glass noodles, veggies and cinnamon sugar filling. It’s nice watching the ajumas cook hot food in the cold🔥

Terlalu banyak di tangan, tak satu pon dalam genggaman 🍂
#Seoul Metropolitan Government on Dec. 13 unveiled an underground solar-powered garden.
- #SolarGarden , located in the northern underground passage of #Jonggak Station, is, as the name suggests, a sun-lit spot. Using remote light collectors installed at ground level, the garden transfers concentrated solar power through specially made lenses to bring natural light to people and plants underground.

Escalator shots in this library are too overrated (or not?) 🙈
Actually, ang hirap lang talaga mag-picture at magpabalik-balik sa escalator para makakuha ng matinong shot at walang ibang tao 😅 .
This library was too crowded when we came, prolly because it was a Sunday. Nonetheless it’s still dreamy and a feast in my eyes. 🥺✨ My bookish self is soooo happy!!! 💖 .
And speaking of books... maybe it’s time I rearrange my book collection 🙈
" I Seoul U, Korea "
Lokasi: Bukchon Hanok Village, Seoul, Korea Selatan (6 Desember 2019). 🇰🇷
--> Walau hanya beberapa jam saja berkunjung ke Seoul, tapi vibe kota ini nyenengin banget! Seoul itu kota metropolis, tapi berbukit-bukit. Keren bgt dan beda dari ibu kota yang lain. Selain itu, banyak juga situs budaya peninggalan Dinasti Joseon yg masih berdiri di tengah kota, salah satunya ya Bukchon Hanok Village ini. Ketika tiba di sana, kalian akan melihat perpaduan klasik rumah-rumah tua khas Korea (cirinya genteng yang meruncing ke atas) dengan gedung-gedung pencakar langit yang arsitekturnya "aneh-aneh". I Seoul U!
Btw, Bukchon Hanok Village ini kompleks perumahan asli yang masih dihuni oleh warga Seoul. Jadi kalau datang ke sini, jangan berisik dan ikuti peraturan yang ada, ya!

I'll never be anything.
I couldn't want to be something.
Apart from that, I have in me all the dreams in the world."
