[KOREA TRIP 2016] Rainy day in Gangnam (K-Star Road & SMTOWN coexartium)

Hello there ~ Today I came to continue my Korea Trip 2016 travel diary. Although C-Festival was held in Gangnam we didn't have any time on that day for sightseeing. On one day we decided to visit the Cube Entertainment cafe and the K-Star Road. So we headed towards Gangnam and got off at Apgujeong Rodeo subway station. The subway station was so high class and I thought "Wow this is the famous Gangnam I've seen in dramas".

Gangnam had very luxurious feel in it. Famous brand stores and super tall buildings everywhere. I also spotted quite many plastic surgery clinics as well. Also there was no litter or trash bags on the streets - pretty different from Hongdae's streets. I still prefer Hongdae better :)

We searched and searched for the Cube Entertainment cafe while walking along the K-Star Road but we didn't found the cafe. We walked by some SM Entertainment building (or a huge advertisement) as well. We also stopped by JYP Entertainment headquarters but there was no one. Baskin' Robbins nearby because it was raining like there's no tomorrow. We also stopped by Olive Young right next to JYP and Krisse bought an umbrella there.
After the trip I found out that the Cube Entertainment cafe had moved somewhere else and is called 20 Space - The Mint Universe now. Just in case anyone is looking for the cafe the new address (as of October 2016) is 83 Achasan-ro Seongdong-gu, Seoul and it's near Seongsu Station.

Song Joong Ki was literally everywhere ! During our visit his drama Descendants of the Sun was super popular and the songs of the drama were also playing everywhere everyday. I had to take these photos because he's just so damn cute advertising the ice cream ~

After spending a while at Baskin' Robbins we decided to head towards SMTOWN coexartium which is located near Samseong station. We spent a good few hours there just taking photos and exploring the building floors. I must say it's a must visit for everyone who likes k-pop !

Overpriced SM goods anyone? There was lots of interesting stuff. If I were into SM groups THAT much and if I had more money I might've bought something. I only bought a cheap water bottle that had Red Velvet photo in it. But that was only because I was thirsty.

The hand matching was so much fun ! You just put your hand and it scans and tells you who of SM artists has same sized hand as you have. I don't remember who I got... LOL! It was also interesting to see and compare the hand sizes between the members of same groups :'Dd If you ever visit SMTOWN coexartium make sure you try this one out.
