Hongdae: Mustoy or Paint Your Own Little Happy Doll
Mustoy we saw people inside clutching something little and painting it. You instantly knew this place was special due to the numerous dolls along the window.
What you do is select either a small or large version of the doll and get a set of permanent markers and go at your creation.
Although, my friend and I didn't make one this day we hope to go back.
The website provides a map that might be interpretable and a video that is also quite helpful. Also go into the iTunes store and look for a mustoy app as you can make one that way.
DIY shops are becoming a little more common these days, but I think they are nice break from the usual coffee-shop hang outs. You definitely feel a sense of creativity and relaxation in the Mustoy place.
I would highly recommend you getting out to one of these and enjoying a different sort of activity in Seoul.
