Exploring Seoul’s Hello Kitty Cafe and Comic World

June 23, 2014 Posted by rissvandal

fdThere are so many wonderful and breathtaking things to explore in Aeoul, but I’ve realized that while traveling in general, one should never set their expectations too high. As someone who’ll soon be able to say that she’s visited all of the countries she’s dreamt of seeing since she was a child (Korea being one, Japan the other) I’m working on perfecting this whole “reasonable expectations” thing.

My nerd interests are almost as big a part of my life as fashion is, so every once in a while I try to make the two worlds collide.

The idea was simple, but completing the task was somewhat more difficult than I expected. Keep in mind, this is not a list of the coolest looking characters, so no matter how badass a character’s appearance, if they live in the same uniform all series, they’re not in the running. And granted, this is a short list and far from complete, but hey, consider it a start. (more…)
