Hello Internet! This month’s Global Seoul Mate Challenge was based on three different categories: Colourful Seoul, Retro Seoul and 24 Hour Activities in Seoul. Here are my recommendations for this month’s challenges. Don’t forget to follow my Instagram and YouTube to keep up with my future GSM posts!
Colourful Seoul – The Cafes of Seongsu
Seongsu was one of the first places I went to in Seoul that felt grungy and dirty enough to almost be Melbourne. With so many cafes to explore, graffiti to be seen and shoes to be.. worn(?) – Seongsu is famous for shoes.
Retro Seoul – Style Nanda and Retail Interiors
Style Nanda is one of the many brands in South Korea that take Visual Merchandising to the level a little higher than extra. This flagship store in Myeongdong is the lovechild of Wes Anderson and Andy Warhol.
Other Korean brands that love their retro inspired VMing include Åland, Ader Error, Gentle Monster and Chuu. Can you think of more!?
24 Hour Activities in Seoul – Seoullo 7017
The Seoullo 7017 bridge at exit 2 of Seoul Station is a great spot to go any hour of the day or night! Have you seen this spot before? I hope Seoul continues to become greener and greener as it continues to grow and develop into the future city that we know and love.
