K-popped goes to Coffee Prince coffee shop!

The Coffee Prince cafe established in 2007.
People say the cafe is located at Hongdae in Seoul, where three major Korean universities are located.

Cosy university town - this is what you see when
you exit from the subway station.

Streets are lined with eateries
and shops. Nice!

After walking for around 15 minutes,
were we glad to finally see this sign!

The cafe looks rather run down and deserted ~ not as new and happening as what you saw in the drama. Nor would you see Yoon Eun-hye or Gong Yoo and the Coffee Princes when you get there. ;-)

Inside, a single barrista was behind the counter and he was a Korean dude with reddish blonde dyed hair. They only served drinks - no waffle, no food.

Coffee Prince drama memorabilia displayed on the walls of the cafe

Leave your mark!

Sunflower wall

Maybe Yoon Eun Hye isn't there,
but you can still see her artwork
on the glass windows

From the inside looking out
Take Subway Line 2 to Hongik University, take Exit 4 -> turn right on Seven Springs corner -> walk 2 blocks -> at the end of the street, turn left -> turn right on the first right - > walk until you almost reach the end of the street where the street goes slightly uphill (about 500 meters) -> find the coffee shop on the right side
