It's been like 2 weeks since I went to this place. But, I didn't get time to post it until today. >.< It's not like I'm very busy, but it's just feel like I've so little time but so many things to do m.m" Well, anyway, going back to the topic...
I've get to know this cafe through naver, it seems like this place is quite popular during spring. And, not only it is full of customer, we found out that this place is quite a famous site for drama, CF and movie shooting. o_O" If you're a Korean Drama fan then you might be familiar with this place as this place has been featured in Nice Guy (Song Joong Ki and Moon Chae Won), Rooftop Prince (Micky Yoo Cheon and Han Ji Min) and many more...
I started my day with Starbucks' Cherry Blossom White Chocolate, while waiting for my friend to meet me up at the nearest exit, since I woke up early and reach quite early than the appointment time. So I decided to enjoy my early morning time before headed to Yangpyeong. It takes around 2 hours before we reach Yangpyeong station, having lunch at 5 Chef restaurant.
Once you reach the station you will have to transfer to bus, then stop at the 7th stop then you will have to walk for like 7~9 minutes. Greem Cafe located in a quite quiet place but with a beautiful spring scenery along the road. =D
Me and my friend decided to walk slowly, enjoying the scenery, while taking pictures here and there. Since the small road is super beautiful, you won't really feel the place is too far away, but is super near instead.
Once you see this place meaning you've reached your destination~!! There will be a small bridge on the right side, so that you can cross the little stream. There's an entrance fee which cost KRW 7,000 each person. But the manager of the place who seated in the ticket office give us a KRW 2,000 each since we are a foreigner who can speak Korean well. LOLZ!! I didn't see that coming so basically I feel very happy with the discount.
The entrance ticket looks like this since we can exchange it into beverages or ice cream of our choice. And the beverages and ice cream menu which they serve is all written here. ^^
The place is not too big but there's lots of corner where they put cute accessories and you can take pictures as many as you'd like to. So if you're a selfie mania, this place might suits you best. ^^
Rather than teenager and young adults, most of the visitors are in their mid 40s. Well, since this is a very good place to have a small talk, enjoying the scenery with your friends.
There's also these kinds of cute little statue all around the places, and it can't stop me from taking photos with them. LOLZ.
After taking pictures near the cafe building, in the right corner of the back yard you will find this small building where actually will be a perfect place for couples to take pictures since they have lots of accessories like big diamond ring, wedding dress, wedding veil, and many more.
Getting out of the building, there another small "hand made" stream where they decorated with cute chairs and tables, little statues...
And there's also this place where normally Korean used to keep their cooking sauces in a traditional way. =D
After looking around and taking tons of photos, me and my friend finally decided to stop and get some rests in this tiny cafe before we head back to Seoul. There's a lot posting in internet which says that the beverage and cake of this cafe taste bad, but we thought other wise. We ordered a jujube honey tea (well, there's room for improvement but the taste is definitely not bad. it's more to average), then we ordered the banana cake and they give us a free little muffin which both taste good~!
Overall the visit to The Greem Cafe was fun. I'm slightly a little disappointed to find out that the place is not as big as I've imagined, but since they make it possible to take tons of photos inside the Greem Cafe, so it's okay. And I didn't really expect the cake and drinks would be good but it's really nice. And, normally when we travel to place which full with locals, they don't really treat us that well, but this place is different. LOLZ. We get discounts, we get a little services here and there, and the staffs (after they found out we're foreigners) greeted us friendly here and there. =D So it was not a bad visit, though I won't thought of going back for another visit, since it's far away, and The Greem Cafe is definitely a "one visit is enough" place.
And for KPOP lovers, you might want to visit this place during may, since the manager told us that they'll have a hectic schedule for MV shooting in May 2016. ^^
