Flower Boy Ramen Shop (Book Cafe)
Because this drama is still my favorite Jung Il-woo drama, it was very important for me to visit the place where it was filmed. Today I made one of my big dreams come true. Being there, I could picture Il-woo all over the place, especially outside. The inside is very different to when they filmed the drama.
Getting to this place is quite an odyssey! First train rides and then walking. It was supposed to be a 25 minute walk, it took me about an hour! I am so, so thankful for the phones’ ability to guide one through many of the map Apps available. I would have found it very hard to get there otherwise! I will update this post soon with the “how to get here.”
So from the train, you get to walk through really interesting parts… I enjoyed the murals. That last one reminded me of the logo of Flower Boy Ramen Shop… I must be on the right way!
This is slightly uphill, but then you get to a park called Subong, and there it gets uphill for real. Beautiful park… I enjoyed walking in it a lot!
inside the park I had another frog encounter! A big one:
…and saw the cutest bus ever:
At last I made all the way to the top of the hill… the views were amazing!
And this is finally my beloved cafe:
Some things were very much the same:
Then others were a bit different:
Yes… so great!
The inside of the cafe is totally different…
The view through the window was so great:
Yes, I had the only food they sold… cookies! I went for seconds! I was so hungry and thirsty by the time I got there. The tea was a lemon Lipton like tea. It tasted like glory! Gloria!!!
It was worth the walk… though I think there is a bus that makes getting there a lot easier!
Bye dearest Cha Chi-soo!
