    A Korean barista has been winning love on social media for his beautiful latté art creations that make customers whip out their phones in a heartbeat to take photos before sipping.

    Meet Lee Kang-bin, the owner of café C.Through which is based in Seoul, South Korea.

    His Instagram profile, which currently has at least 188,000 followers, has become a virtual museum of artsy masterpieces ranging from classics to anime to celebrities.

    He even does 3D!!

    He’s oppa-material too, if you haven’t noticed already.

    You may question whether all this beauty would be edible, but Lee makes a point in every post that his creations are totally for drinking, according to Asian Crush.

    He even holds one-day classes for aspiring latté artists, too!

    Check out more of his work below:

    It seems Lee’s business is easily giving other coffee stops a run for their money, but who doesn’t want their faces on their coffee?

    Slay, Lee!
