2002 : iTalian coffee shop branch came into South Korea with local bakery conglomerate SPC . and with the influx of cafes all-around the Peninsula some local and some imported like above with, with the one thing-for-sure : that there is enough coffee shop around your corner unless you are a remotely suburban area . more-over branches differ even among the same operating brand because many populated areas are prime real estate, so rental properties come in all sizes and floors . so the type I hate the most is smaller ones with floors-up than horizontally-wide .
so here I introduce my unofficial office while in smack in the middle of down-town SEOUL . at the South-Western end of classic shopping district, right in front of Central Post Office AND across from Shinsegae Department Store Main Branch . it is huge, with many private booths but not many people nomatter which time you choose – thanks to its guised entrance, even though they have TWO in front and back of the once haunted building which burnt in flames when it was one of the nation’s earlier deluxe hotels .
