Located on the main Gangnam Street, the Kakao Friends store created quite the sensation when it opened its doors. A towering building, it’s jam packed with your favorite characters from Korea’s most popular chatting app. There are large Ryan, Frodo, Neo, Muzi, Apeach and G-Jay characters with whom you can take your next Facebook profile picture with. You can buy souvenirs of your favorite characters on pencil cases, phone cases, pens, mouse pads, t-shirts, pillows and other fun items. There’s even a café on the third floor where you can hang out and relax with your friends, both online and real life.
While there are other smaller Kakao Friends stores located throughout Seoul, the Kakao Friends Flagship Store in Hongdae is the other flagship store in Seoul.
