Afternoon tea time with Cafe-hopping in Seoul
Seoul offers a lot of cozy and unique cafes for dessert & coffee/tea lovers. While enjoying a lovely coffee chat with a sweet dessert, you will also get a perfect memory of the authentic Seoul city lifestyle! I will explain the fun stories about the place and take lots of fantastic pictures of you. Seoungsu(성수) is located east of Seoul(near Han river park). It's a hip & trendy neighborhood with lots of stylish cafes, restaurants, galleries, and designer/brand boutiques. People often call here Brooklyn of Seoul, which I feel somewhat yes and no, we will figure it out together! I will curate three cafes, but we can pivot a little bit based on your choice of style and ambiance. We will meet at Seongsu station and walk through the main street together. The new cafes in Seongsu-dong do not simply focus on coffee, but rather have signature menus that express the unique characteristics of each cafe; the style and vibe varies from Oriental, Retro, Futuristic, Minimalism, Tropical, etc. If you don't have any other particular cafe or style you want, we will start from Seongsu’s classic - Daelim Changgo(대림창고) and two of my favorite hipster cafes together and spend one to two hours at each cafe. I will carry the seongsu cafe map I made for curating the best experience for you. Please be advised drinks or food are NOT included(We can split some dessert with you if you want!).
K-Beauty Personal color, Must-do course in Korea
If you came to Korea, Beauty Kingdom, you should take this course! Warmton, Coolton. Maybe you've heard this word quite a lot, right? :) If you watch the videos of Korean beauty YouTubers, it must be a pretty familiar word. Personal colors are widely known through SNS nowadays! The tip of this class can help you make a lifelong image! And make it way easier shopping in Korea! Personal color refers to a set of colors that harmonize with the natural tone of color each individual has, making the skin tone even more bright. When personal colors make good harmony with one's natural colors, they make the person look lively and bright. But, when they do not go well with the natural skin tone, they only take away the clearness of the skin, making skin faults more visible. Thus, knowing your own body color is helpful for making a good image. First, personal colors can be mainly divided into two categories: warm and cool tone. And This course will let you know more specific categories that you are in, and will help you shine more brightly ! It is a course that can simplify your shopping ! (color of clothes, matching of clothes, and makeup products etc.) Don't wear only black, white, and gray clothes anymore! Find a color that suits you and try various Colors :)! And don’t forget to bring ur makeup pouch! I can diagnose your make up products:)

송파구에 위치한 터프팅공방 '오얏실'은 작가의 성 ‘오얏 리 (李)'와 터프팅의 주재료인 실(yarn), 공간을 의미하는 실(室)의 중의적 의미를 합친 합성어입니다. 자두나무의 우리말 ‘오얏’은 조선과 대한제국의 상징입니다. 민화, 단청, 창살 등에서 영감을 받아 작품을 만듭니다. 실의 다발(tuft)을 의미하는 터프팅(tufting)은 천에 그림을 그리듯 실을 박아 러그, 거울, 인테리어 소품 등을 빠른 속도로 완성할 수 있습니다. 2시간~3시간 동안 공방에서 준비한 10개의 전통 도안 (오얏꽃, 무궁화, 단청 등) 중 하나를 선택해 25*25cm 크기의 미니러그를 만듭니다. 한국의 미를 담은 도안으로 세상에 하나밖에 없는 터프팅 작품을 만들어보세요! Oyatsil is tufting studio located in Songpa-gu, Seoul. the name of Oyat, the Korean word for plum trees, is a symbol of Joseon and the Korean Empire.

인력거를 타고 서울 북촌 둘러보기
Take pedicab and find secret “Seoul” where only we know! Many tourists visit Seoul every day. But unfortunately most tourists only visit typical spots that are well known to people. Seoul tower, palaces, Gangnam, Gwangjang market, theme parks, and so on. But if you want to experience something different, please come with us. We can bring you to the places where even Korean locals do not know. You will discover hidden Seoul with us. We have special vehicles optimized for this kind of tour. There are many alleyways in Seoul where cars cannot go through. But we can travel those alleyways with pedicabs. In addition, pedicabs do not have windows so nothing can obstruct your view. You can enjoy the scenery more clearly. Please savor every single view on the pedicab with slow speed. We have already passed enough beautiful moments far too quickly. At the beginning of the tour, we will go to ‘Bukchon’, where the alleys and roads whisper the forgotten secrets of Korea. Layers of antique houses and small alleyways steeped in tradition. There are hundreds of beautiful alleyways to get lost in but you will not get lost with us. I hope you to find your unique story of Seoul with us.
