Instead of compiling everything that I did in Korea last week, I would like to share some captured moments that tell the ambiance in this special place - Kyobo Bookstore @ GwangHwamun Seoul. We went to this book store with Rano, Khulan and Ogia. I was amazed with what I saw and feel in here. The reading vibes is pretty strong here consider it is a weekday and night time. Check out the photos below and I can assure you it worth a visit.
There's only one problem in this place, 90% of the books are in Korean so we spent most of our time in the International book corner hahaha. For more information about Kyobo Book Store, visit www.kyobobook.co.kr (Korean only).

" Kyobo Bookstore is Korea's largest chain of bookstores. Approximately 2.3 million books are categorized electronically so you can easily find whatever selection you are looking for. It is always crowded with people, especially on weekends with readers both young and old enjoying a good book.
Kyobo also hosts a variety of events, including a book of the month event where authors come and meet with readers to discuss their work. There's also a character shop, a stationery store and a music store where you can listen to your favorite album. The foreign book corner is popular among foreigners because there are numerous books written in various languages. Those unable to find specific titles can order them for delivery at the counter. "
Since it was our first night in Seoul and I had enough sleep in the hotel (Koreana Hotel has a very comfortable bed), I decided to join them last minute for a tour around the city. After visit Kyobo Book Store in Gwanghwamun, we then went further towards Namdaemun. Weather was chilly after rain and it was a good night to remember =) On a personal note, I think Kyobo Book Store is a good place for casual wedding photoshoot too. Now I do have an idea, which is to find a couple who love reading and get their moments captured in here.
Stay tuned for my next photo post about Seoul Street at night =)
