[TRAVEL] Mediterranean Village

1964524_1_19

Mediterranean Village in Asan, a rising tourist attraction of Korea, was modeled on Santorini and the Parthenon in Greece and the Provence region of France. Asan’s European-style architecture, with white walls and blue roofs, gives off the feeling of Santorini. The alleys are minimally decorated with simple chairs and plain brick walls. The first floor of most buildings is used for cafes, restaurants, craft shops, general stores and guest houses. The second floors are available for artists’ residences, with citizens of the village normally living on the third floor. During the evening, lamps installed throughout the streets provide a beautiful night scene, with diverse street performances on weekends.

[TRAVEL] MUSTOY Cafe (무스토이)

1801078_1_3

When you first walk in to Mustoy Cafe, you might not even think it a cafe at all. It has a feel of an art studio, the walls covered in past works, patrons diligently managing their crafts and occasionally looking up to check on their partner’s creation. The owner of the café, a former TV commercial director, wanted a café that stood out in the artist heavy community of Hongdae.

The café offers the chance to decorate two main characters, the boy ‘Muskky’ (Mustoy + lucky) and the girl “Musppy” (Mustoy + happy) — both were designed by the same artist who created the popular children’s cartoon character Pororo. Muskky and Musppy come in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors to choose from and they even have a salt and pepper shaker model. They also have clothes and other themed accessories you can purchase to add a bit more style to your character.

With the purchase of a character comes a free drink and Mustoy Café provides all the essentials you need to design the perfect Mustoy. Mustoy Café is a great place to take a date or spend the day expressing your inner artist.

Address:
1F Caliope, 344-6, Seogyo-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul-si
Hours
11:30 – 21:30 (closed on Monday)
