This weekend I checked out Hongdae for the second time since moving to Seoul. I live completely on the other side of the city, so getting to this trendy area is quite the journey –  though one that always seems to be worth it.

One of my friends and I decided to check out the Trick-Eye Museum – a fun place where you can take various photos putting you in a variety of unusual situations.

We paid about a 15,000 won admission fee which got us in to the museum, a carnival area, and a giant refrigerator with ice sculptures.

She found sweet potatoes!

We spent about an hour at the museum and it was a pretty fun time. If you’re checking out Seoul and don’t have much time though, I’d recommend going to N. Seoul Tower – while you’re waiting for the elevator they have an extensive museum very similar to the one in Hongdae – but if you’re looking to kill a few hours with some good friends, bring your cameras and check this place out.
