Location: Walking distance from Hong-dae station exit 8. Locate at the Kakao museum next to the Kakao Friends store in Hong-dae.
First of all, Kakao talk is most popular messenger in Korea.
Kakao Friends is character from Kakao talk. Korea has lots of stores for Kakao friends.
If you come to Korea before September, you must visit this place.
Because it is cheap to buy Kakao friends stuff. I recommend you need to visit early in the morning cause most of goods will be sold out in the afternoon.
Kakao Factory store is pop up store, so store is small. But there are lots of promotion going on. One of event that I recommend is Friend jewels random box. 1 person can only purchase 1 box and limited quantity 100ea per day. Kakao friends jewel is so cute. But little bit expensive. This is a good chance to buy jewels by good price. I picked Neo necklace and satisfied with my choice.
There is no age limit to go in Kakao friends factory store.
