Dino Brown + Blue Hoodie Ryan + Rilakkuma Lifestyle explores Seoul, South Korea!

I graduated, and now I’m officially an MD! Feeling so relieved, and now I have a whole month to relax before starting my intern year!

So after our vacation in Hawaii, we made a quick stop in Seoul, South Korea!

Didn’t snap any Rilakkuma photos in Seoul, but we did get to meet some other cute bears!! Well, one is a lion without a mane, but still hehe.

Yummy Brown-themed lemon roll cake from the LINE Friends Flagship Store and Cafe in Garosu-gil! This LINE Friends Store had an entire floor just for photo zones!

Picked up a super cute Dino Brown from the Jungle Brown Line! He is so fluffy and soft in his green dinosaur suit! My favorite detail is that his footprints kind of look like three-eyed smiley faces hehe. Hope he enjoys being with all the Rilakkumas here ;)

We also visited the SKINFOOD Concept Store in Garosu-gil, where they had a wonderful cafe and rooftop garden! I got a tasty chocolate latte (hot chocolate) with a super cute marshmallow bear! I am not sure what this yummy marshmallow bear has to do with the SKINFOOD brand (cosmetics, skincare, etc.), but it was a very cute cafe!

We were staying in the Hongdae area, and we actually ran into a store that sold authentic San-X Rilakkuma plush and goods! They even stocked rare, limited edition items like the pizzaiolo Rilakkuma from the Umeda 7th Anniversary Series! Unfortunately, they were WAY expensive, but it was good anyway to see a familiar bear’s face in Korea hehehe.

Overall, I had an amazing time in Seoul eating, shopping, sightseeing, exploring, and of course, spending time with my classmates before we graduate and move onto the next chapters in our lives!

Next stop, Los Angeles, CA!

Have you been to any character cafes before? I wish there were some here in Florida!!

  1. That’s so awesome! I’m planning my South Korea trip for next year and can’t wait to see what’s out there!!

    Are you having a meetup in LA? If so I’d love to meet up! There’s a Rilakkuma cafe here in LA. You have to check out if you aren’t already aware! Safe travels!!

    • So cool!!! I loved South Korea! They used to have an unofficial Rilakkuma cafe there too, but I heard it closed down a few years ago (maybe because of a licensing thing?). I was so surprised by how expensive the Rilakkuma plushes were, I thought they’d be cheaper since Japan is so close, but I guess an import is still and import!

      Ah, I would’ve loved to meet up with you and other LA Rilakkuma fans! Unfortunately, this time was just a short trip to see my family—I didn’t even have the chance to stop by any stores stocking Rilakkuma like JapanLA, Tamaya, etc. But next time, I will be sure to stay longer and I would LOVE to meet up!! I am Rilakkuma starved here in Florida haha.

      I didn’t know there was a Rilakkuma cafe in LA! That means I’ll definitely have to go back and visit ;)
