I was in Seoul this week for some Mirai Smart Doll related work - some of her clothes and wigs are made in Korea where there is quite a healthy doll industry - they even have their own Volks store.
I've been to Korea a few times over the past couple of years but this was the first time I've done a CJ Night which was held at a doll shop & cafe called Nine9 Style - here one can bring along their dolly sons n daughters while nomming on snacks, buying clothes and accessories or taking snaps in the various photo booths.
To get to Nine9 Style, get off at the closest station which is Hongik University on the green line 2. Address as follows.
301 Gukil building, 449-43 Seogyo-dong Mapo-gu. Seoul.
서울시 마포구 서교동 449-43번지 301호
I'm going to leave you with a wall of photos taken that night which include photos of the shop section that has a load of doll apparel made by Nine9 Style.
If you are interested in ordering stuff then check out their English shopping site.
Ah! But before I do leave you I want to introduce you to these bunch of folks from Green Tea Graffiti who I met at CJ Night. They are from the US and currently work in the KPOP scene but do a load of Japan related stuff too and speak English, Korean and Japanese too.
Had a candid interview which can be seen below where I am forced to choose between Soju or Sake, PS4 or XBOX One, AKB48 or NMB48 and so on.
