Escape to Seoul Day 6 (Part 1 of 2)

Read Day 5 here.

Day 6 is all about purrrety stuff. ❤

  • Dress Up Cafe
  • Trick Eye Museum
  • Hongdae
  • Myeongdong (yep!)

We want to try the Dress Up Cafe everyone is talking about. We had the address, we know the stops, but we couldn’t find it. We walked for a very long time until we reached a quiet street and found this eye-catching shop.

This quaint shop seemed like it is owned by a secret society with a fetish for costumes, wedding dresses etc.

It’s easy to spot once you’ve seen 7Eleven. Right across it, Cafe Drama is located at the lower floor of a building, so you have to watch out for that pink sign.

Here is also a map from their website for your reference:

I wasn’t able to explore their website because it’s mainly in Korean. On a lighter note, the look of represents their shop very well.

We got there early (I think they just opened?) because we were their second batch of customers. The first ones were a couple of young girls with their mom who got this outstanding outfit complete with hair dress and make up.

Based on what I remember (and please correct me if I am wrong), I think you have to order a few drinks before you can borrow (rent) their dresses/costumes. We got a few hot chocolate drinks. I love their mugs and the spoons are gorgeous. I have never seen anything like or similar to that before.

Kizia got the red outfit and I got the green one.

I was actually torn between getting this one and the warrior outfit. It’s a bit more expensive (at 35,000 won) than the one I chose (at 30,000 won) but you’ll look fierce in that one, don’t you think?

Aside from traditional Korean outfits,

there are also wedding dresses available in the shop. Believe me, we really had a hard time choosing from all of these.

We really had fun and to prove that, here are a few photos. Doing the serious poses at first:

and then some…

This is one of my favorites:

“Call me!” A celebrity wearing Hanbok, a traditional Korean dress.



I’ll post more photos here soon. 🙂 Okay, maybe one more:

    1. Hi trixieliao! The photos are mainly from our camera. Solo shots were taken by either Kizia or me. 🙂 As for the photos with us together, the staff offered to take our pictures. But that’s it since they saw us taking turns in getting the shot. You can also pay extra to get 10-20 Instax shots. They’ll let you borrow the Instax mini and you get 10 or 20 papers. The Instax camera is owned by the place.

      Yes, Cafe Drama has a photographer, but I believe you have to call and schedule a date? They also have a make up artist (I think for an additional charge) but there is someone who will definitely assist you in fixing your costume/outfit and hair dress. I hope that helps!
