I was so excited to see the Seoul Star Avenue after I made it to Seoul. I expected it to be bigger and better than the Star Avenue I found in Bangkok, Thailand!
I have to say that it was indeed different. I can’t say it was bigger or better because what they had was completely different from the one in Bangkok.
This Star Avenue is located in the LOTTE Department Store in Myeongdong but it’s not the only Seoul Star Avenue. I found another one in Starfield Coex Mall but it was closed when I went. The other one is in Lotte World!
ADD: 1F, Main Branch of LOTTE Department Store, 30 Eulji-ro, Sogong-dong, Jung-gu, Seoul, South Korea [Gmaps]
Something I thought was interesting was the BTS hologram screen I found. I didn’t notice it at first until I saw someone else playing with it. I was on my way into the LOTTE Department Store when all the BTS members appeared on something like a glass mirror. Since it acts like a mirror, you can take photos with the members with you in them. You could also do this with EXO & Twice. It’s hard to see in the photo but seeing it with my own eyes in real life, it’s pretty cool! (╯✧▽✧)╯
I was so happy to find BTS, Twice & Stray Kids Hi-Touch sections. I had already seen Super Junior, EXO & 2PM at the Bangkok Star Avenue so I was most excited for the other ones I hadn’t seen.
Of course it’s the same as a real Hi-Touch but it’s close enough. And I can proudly say, I have already Hi-Touched Stray Kids before at the KCON NY 2018 so doing the Stray Kids Hi-Touch at this Star Avenue really brought back memories of being so close to the members. ☆*:.｡.o(≧▽≦)o.｡.:*☆
Here are some of the kpop idols I hi-touched and made their screens turn on. The Seoul Star Avenue was very busy and packed, after all, it’s in one of the busiest places in Seoul, Myeongdong. It was hard to capture all the idols I wanted on camera but I did get a few other idols icluding my faves, like my BTS bias Jimin. (｡♡ //ε// ♡｡)
I ended up trying all the Hi-Touch even though I already seen them before in Bangkok. I had to check if any of the screens were different, especially Sehun’s. ♡~(/▽＼*)｡o○♡
I also had to make sure I got my Stray Kids bias, Bang Chan! ♡＼(◕▽◕)／♡ Was there a lot of gushing? Yes there was!
(ﾉ♡ヮ♡)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ Just look at him!
And then of course I had to get my Twice bias, Jeongyeon! ╰(▔ω▔)╯Too cute to go unnoticed!
Would I go again? Yup!
It’s a nice place to walk by and look at. I wish I spent more time there since I only stopped for a few minutes. If they made Star Avenue as a café, it would be a huge hit! It would be great to have somewhere to sit, maybe have a drink with some cake and meet other fans.
