Essential Tour-Afternoon 620×140


1.) Korean socks – It’s like choosing candy at the candy store. Too many too choose from! :( These socks are usually 500W to 1,000W in price. Great deal!

2.) Planner – Cuteness written all over.

3.) Pencil Case Pouch – Nyom nyom nyom. Eats your delicious pencils and pens 😀

4.) Dish sofa – If you live by yourself, just invest in a dish sofa. It’s super comfortable and saves a lot of space.

5.) Wallpaper Stickers – Must have if you ever want to decorate your place in Korea! They are easy to remove, too!

6.) Keyboard Stickers – You can make your ancient laptop look new.

7.) Bunny Smartphone Case – If you are visiting Korea, you will see almost every girl with a bunny smartphone case ;D

8.) Cute Pillows – Make a wish. Think of your favorite character cartoon character – most likely Korea will have a pillow with that character incorporated as the design.

9.) 3.5mm Earphone Jack – Bunny Ears (for decoration) – These little things have become a very big fashion trend these days in Korea (2012). These are for the more bold and *bling *bling fashion people out there who need to accessorize everything!

10.) Korean Earmuffs – Picture explains it all :) C’mon, how is this not cute! 😀

  1. Hahah! This post is just perfect. Someone said Korea is the land of all cute things!
    Next week I’ll be there and I’m sure I’ll remember this post…
    I’ve always wanted to buy a cute cake like that, because we hardly see something like this in Brazil. *-*
    I can’t imagine myself leaving without the socks! Gotta buy a lot of them (gifts to my friends).
    I’m sure I’ll come back home with lots of cute things <3

  2. Yes, people still use stickers! I collect cute stickers~ I’m stuck in this state with no access to cute stuffs T_T Online order can get pricy too :((

  3. Doralis

    Soooo many cute stuff, so hard to choose which is cuter! But the mouse pads and the Hello Kitty toaster are just…BRILLIANT! I’m always cold, especially in the office so I hope I can find those mouse pads online! >.<

  4. Sarah

    You forget the oh so adorable and comfy animal pajamas.

  5. I’m generally not a big fan of cute stuff… but I need one of those mousepads!! My right hand is always cold while working on the computer… where do you get them?

  6. Abissan

    Noooooo!!! I want to come to Korea right now and go on a buy-everything-cute spree. I’m a sucker for cute things. The thing about them is that they are useful, not just randomly useless cute (Not that randomly useless cute things shouldn’t be bought).

    Does anyone know an on-line store that sells stuff like this and delivers internationally?

    • Mimi

      Japan is the King of Cute! Cute in Japanese is Kawaii, search kawaii shops and you will find LOTS of online stores that sell this type of stuff :)

      • In fact, Japanese people find ugly things cute Mimi. I have been to both Japan and Korea as an American person. Japan is widely spread with other things, less of cute things. Korea is probably one of the best places for cute stuff. They’re shopping malls are full of these things! Japan is NOT the king of cute

  7. OMG!! i remembered being crazy in book store.just because of the headphone cord winder and sticky notes.. also spent almost not-sure-how-long-hours at shop just to buy that cute socks. LOL

  24. Dragon City is the most popular Facebook game with reason.
    In fact, if you tend to ramble off-topic, you may actually be doing more harm
    than good. With an active user base of 8 million, Mafia Wars provides an virtual outlet for the closet gangster, present in
    all of us.

  28. Lei

    Little usability suggestion! Page numbers under the article are hardly visible and ads completely overshadow them. Took me several times and opening this article in various browsers to realise where they were. You may want to make them more visible or have a big shiny NEXT button!

  30. Alex

    Artbox has a lot of cute stuff to buy.

  31. Namarap

    Wow, jinjja kyeopta, Oppa…
