The Coffee Prince Cafe

Posted in travels by tokyostargirl on February 24, 2009

I am sure some of you have heard or seen “The Coffee Prince,” a Korean drama series. I have not, but I have heard of it and my friends have pretty much given me the run down so I kinda feel as though I’ve seen it. One of my friends really wanted to go there. The story is that this was a coffee shop before and when they were putting together ideas for the drama series, one of the guys from the drama knew the owner of this coffee shop and asked if they could use the shop. They decided that the shop would be closed for 6-8 months (or something like that) during filming and afterwards they could use the name and get publicity. It was a risk the owner had to take, but it sure did pay off! It was a lovely experience and will be even more lovely once I watch the drama and know that “hey – I’ve been there!”

    I have never heard of it, but just by looking at the pics it seems like a lot of fun.

    Never heard of it either, but goodness gracious those are the cutest drinks! I’d have trouble drinking them! I love latte art.

    Hi Faith! I couldn’t respond back on your blog so I’ve got to do it here – Hope you get better soon! It’s hard for me to drink latte art, too – that’s why I ordered a cold drink! hahaa
