The Kakao Friends Flagship Store in Hongdae is home to the cute characters of Korea’s #1 messaging app. Ryan, Frodo, Apeach and the rest of the gang are available to take home on pencils, phone cases, pillows and anything else. The Kakao Friends Store in Hongdae has exclusive Kakao items as well as a Kakao Friends concept museum. Here you’ll see the creation process for the characters and get to fanboy/girl over them. The entry fee comes with a discount coupon for the ticket price, so you’ll get to see if for free if you’re buying something anyway.
While there are other smaller Kakao Friends stores located throughout Seoul, the Kakao Friends Flagship Store in Gangnam is the other flagship store in Seoul.
