JYJOONYOO IN KOREA - Day3 Kpop Wave

Woke up around 10am in the morning and decided to pay the kpop agencies a visit. Don't normally have breakfast so decided to skip it and head over to Cheongdamdong first. I also decided not to wear my trench coat and just wore a sweater which I bought at Busan. So, I wore 2 or 3 layers only! 2 I think, just the long johns inside and the sweater. Crazy right! End up catching a cold and headache which slightly affected my next 3 days in Seoul. :/

The sun is still shining brightly even when it's so cold!

Stumbled upon someone reporting something. Just took a pic and left. Lol

Some random underground shopping centre.

Alighted at Cheongdamdong and off I go!

Just walking on the streets of Korea makes me so happy!
Amazingly, one of the best memories of my Korea trip last year is just walking on streets in Korea. Just walking and adventuring around, you don't know what awaits you next, and everything you see is so new and fresh you forgot how long you have walked.


Rimowa luggages! Wished I had one.

Crayon Pop!!! <3<3<3
JUMPING! YE! JUMPING YE!
EVERYBODY!!!

Using tips from the internet, I finally found Cube Entertainment! Almost couldn't believe my eyes because this sight is normally seen through the computer screen and finally I got to see it with my own eyes!
I got so excited and wanted to see more places that I forgot to take a picture of myself with it.
(But I managed to take one later when I returned in day 10.) XD

JYP Entertainment!
It was just located down the road from Cube Entertainment.

Taken from JYP entertainment. See how near they are!

Then I saw Cube Cafe! Was planning to have my breakfast (or brunch) here, but it wasn't open!
This is the place that many fans camp here and wait for a chance to bump into Cube Artists. They will literally just walk beside the Cafe to get into their studio! Of course I didn't get to meet them.. :(



Cube cafe was closed!!

Realising that Cube Cafe was closed, I then went to search for SM's building. It took me quite a while to get the directions and after a long walk, I finally got to Korea's most powerful entertainment agency, SM Entertainment!

The new building of SM Entertainment!



There was a playground opposite SM so I went to sit around there, hoping to see any idols. Anyone will do... Like just wanna have the feeling of bumping into someone famous so I can brag to my kpop fans friends.. Hahaha! So lame right!
I only wore 3 layers that morning because I wanted to see whether I can stand the temperature or not... Such a stupid fool! I caught a cold later after staying in the playground for like 30 minutes. Decided to leave as I know I will fall sick if I don't immediately get some heating. (Plus I haven't ate anything and it's already 12pm.)

Took it at the playground opposite SM.

There's a school located nearby SM. 
They must have lotsa chances bumping into idols as they are so near right!



Realised I was way too weak to walk the far distance back to the station anymore, decided to cab back.
Mr Taxi Taxi Taxi~

Map of Apgujeong-dong displayed at the subway station.
SO MANY PLASTIC SURGERY CLINICS!!
At this point I found out that Plastic Surgery is really thriving in Korea!
(Not that I'm against it.) Haha!


Met a fellow Malaysian in front of SM. Was trying to see idols too, and her family was there waiting with her too! So good right! My parents would have thrown me there if it was them.. :/
I wasn't planning to attend Music Show recordings at first as it was super hard to get into those programs according to many blogs. But I decided to give it a try after my new friend asked me to join them the next day. I had to get an album of the artist who will be recording for the show. The comebacks during that period was EXO, B2st's JunHyung and T-ARA.
How nice! I like B2st and T-ARA alot!! So I decided to attend T-ARA's recording.

But first, I had to get back for a short nap because I was feeling so damn under the weather.
I couldn't even finish a kimbap!


After a 3 hour nap back at my room, I left for the album store located at Jonggak Station.
Contrary to popular belief, Kpop albums aren't everywhere in Seoul. You won't get to see it everywhere unlike those cosmetics and apparels. They are only sold at certain areas. I have been wondering where I can find Kpop album and thanks to my new friend's mom who did a whole lot of research than me, I got to buy Kpop albums! AND GOT A WHOLE LOT OF OFFICIAL KPOP POSTERS FOR FREE!
FREE!
The ajjussi at the albums section was so kind! He literally gave me what ever posters I wanted! I only bought 2 albums which were T-ARA's Again 1997 and B2st's Hard To Love How To Love. He gave me like 4 T-ARA, 1 B2st, 1 Trouble Maker, 1 SNSD, 1 Hyuna and 1 Block B!
So kind of him man!

For those who wanna go and buy Kpop Albums, this is the information:
Bandi & Luni's Bookstore
Exit 3 Jonggak Station


KPOP KPOP AND KPOP



There was an underground shopping centre also, walked around abit and went back to sleep again because I still don't feel well.


Shopping really never stops at Seoul. Almost every underground stations I went have an underground shopping centre attached to it. :0


My sickness was temporary relieved when I exited the subway station.
SNOW!!!
SNOW!!! LIKE LEGIT SNOW FALLING FROM THE SKY!
That was the first time I felt snow dropping on my face in my entire life!
Felt so happy and took so many pictures! However they turned out so blurry because I was so excited so this is the only picture I got, which is not clear also... ZZZ

Went to sleep abit earlier than the rest of the days because I have to wake up super early the next morning to catch the train to attend the music show recording!



That's all for day3! Thanks for reading!
