Ddong Poop-Themed Cafe in Insadong

Last year while I was working as a kindergarten teacher in Seoul, one day I had to take my students to a puppet show. The puppet show was entirely in Korean, so I never understand exactly what was happening, but I did know one thing–it was about poop. I sat through an entire maybe 30-40 minute long puppet show about farting raccoons with indigestion that had to battle evil alien space poops. Why am I telling you this? Well that whole puppet show served as my introduction to Korea’s interesting relationship with poop. In a country that has a toilet-themed park and a well-known dung-obsessed cartoon character, that puppet show really wasn’t all that odd.

All that said, when I found out there was a poop-themed cafe just a couple train stops from my house, I was a little less surprised than you might expect.

It’s cute alright, but in my opinion, ice cream cones topped with kittie heads also teeter on the verge of creepy. And so I decided to continue in that direction–so cute it’s…kinda creepy. (more…)
