Coffee Shop in South Korea Basically Puts Customers Inside a Comic Book

An Instagram-worthy cafe in South Korea, which lets customers feel like they are inside a cartoon, has impressed a lot of netizens after images of the coffee shop went viral recently.

Named after its address in Seoul, “Cafe Yeonnam-dong 239-20” is reportedly inspired by popular Korean TV drama “W (Two Worlds)” which stars Lee Jong-suk and Han Hyo-joo.

In the show, the lead characters are shown crossing between the real world and a fantasy world inside a webtoon.

It even features signature coffee items referencing the show: the “W coffee” which is topped with vanilla bean cream and the “W salty latte.”

According to BoredPanda, the delightful little cafe opened in July 2017 in Yeonnam-dong district near Hongik University station and has since enthralled visitors with its unique design and decor.  

The exterior looks like a typical shop, but upon entering, customers will immediately notice what makes it so special.
