Hi guys! My family and I went to Korea last week (July 6 – July 10) to escort my cousin to her summer school (CUK Global Summer School 2017) at Gyeonggi-do. The rest of us stayed in Seoul, Korea for 4 days.
*For this blog, there won’t be anything about Funko Pops. Sadly, I didn’t find any Funko Pops during our stay. 😦 (Or maybe they’re very rare in Korea?) Although I hauled a lot of awesome toys and collectibles for my collection room! 😀
Our place was near to the shopping places. If you plan to travel in Korea, Myeongdong, Seoul is a MUST see place if you love shopping. There is a LOT of stores selling items in affordable prices. Most of the stores are selling beauty products (my mom hauled a lot lol). If you are into beauty products, you will definitely love this place. Of course, my focus was hunting any collectible items for my room.
I recently got drawn into watching k-drama. The first k-drama that I watched, Goblin, was a very well made series. I loved the plot and everything. Then my cousin suggested Weightlifting Fairy (my favorite k-drama so far by the way). Now, I’m currently watching Descendants of the Sun. There were a lot of k-drama merchandises in the underground markets (also a MUST see place). These were my k-drama hauls:
I also bought my first Popobes:
I’ve seen them before online. They are very popular in Korea. Couldn’t resist the cute spideys and Toy Story Popobes! xD
There was also a LINE store in Myeongdong:
Very cute products. Bought this figure:
Here are some of my hauls from various shops such as Artbox (A LOT of awesome stuff in here!), mini stalls, etc.:
There was also a newly opened 8-floor Daiso near our place in Seoul:
If you are looking for very cheap yet good quality items, this is the place! Here are my hauls from Daiso:
Used the display cases for these:
By the way, if you are a k-pop fan, Seoul is definitely a heaven for you! My cousin is a k-pop fan, and she hauled a LOT. A lot of k-pop merchandises were given for free (or for buying things for a certain amount of won) in beauty product stores during our stay. There were also other k-pop merchandises being sold in the underground markets such as keychains, tumblers, posters, pillows, etc.
In terms of food, there were a lot of delicious food in Seoul. Since I LOVE spicy food, their food was a paradise for me. Almost everything is spicy! ❤ My favorite food was the spicy cheese noodles:
Very delicious and extremely spicy. Bought them for 1k won each at Daiso.
The next time we go back, we will definitely travel to the other places in Korea! 😀
Here are more pictures from our trip!
During our stay in the Hong Kong airport (because there was no direct flight available), I also bought my first Hot Toys Cosbaby:
Spider-man cosbaby! Very awesome.
Now that I’m back in the Philippines, Funko Pop hunting time!!! 😀
