So here’s our third segment with Arirang TV. This one is on Coffee in Korea. As you might already know, we freaking love Korean Coffee culture, as we made a video about CafÃ© Lua recently and our favorite Coffee Shop in Samchungdong a long time ago. And so, since we’re so passionate about sharing Korean Coffee Culture, we did a video with Arirang TV about it. Huzzah!
One interesting note here: the coffee shop in this video from 57 seconds to roughly 1:05 is a great coffee shop in Bucheon called “Coffee Kitchen.” We go there a lot, but we haven’t made a video for it yet, which we plan on doing someday. It’s a fantastic coffee shop with a great vibe. It’s located behind Hyundai Department Store. Pass the street food stall and walk towards that clock tower thingy in the middle of the intersection. Look up to the second floor on your right. You’ll see Coffee Kitchen there. Bam!
Another thing: in this video you’ll see us talk about Hongdae a bit, and our idea of the new things that Korea provides. This is something we’re passionate about, as we mentioned in our last post talking about David Dutton’s awesome movie. You hear a lot about Korea’s tradition and culture, but not that much about their newer trends. Korean coffee is often brushed off as just being Maxim Sticks and Instant Coffee, but it’s really a lot more than that, and it’s a growing trend. Coffee Shops are popping up all over the place, and though some of them can be quite bad, others can be really, really awesome.
Anyhow, that’s enough about coffee for now. Probably the reason why we’ve done so much about it as of late is because we just about live in coffee shops. So, if you’ve got an awesome one to recommend, please let us know! We’re always looking for cool places to sit down and edit videos for hours! Hooray! And, as always, big thanks to JB and Annie from [ë‹‰ì‘¤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* for the Korean subtitles. Huzzah!
