At SK, I had a day-trip at Seoul which I called as ‘an art appreciation day’ whereas one of schedules is visiting Studio Concrete (SC). SC is a small 3-floor art studio which also served as coffee shop. SC became so famous because one of the founders was the well known and talented young actor
with sexy lips, Yoo Ah In. YAI’s passion for art and design made him teamed up with some artists and they designed the famous 1 to 10 emotion sweatshirt which is supposedly was sell by SC as their offline store.
I didn’t come to SC to buy a sweatshirt which is quite pricey, to be honest, I came by to see the famous actress and actors polaroid pics who also wears 1 to 10 emotion sweatshirt, and they’re none other than YAI’s best friends, Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki! -Yes, I still got DotS’s fever at that time-. SHK is his older sister since they’re work under the same agency, meanwhile SJK is his best buddy because they worked together at same K-drama (whereas they won award as a best couple, LOL), As a support for YAI, SHK and SJK wore the sweatshirt at some occasions and they didn’t mind to take the pics by wearing it too and those pics hanged at SC. After had my coffee, I looked around to see the pics and rather than finding the famous polaroid pics, at that time, SC became a special gallery for Jean Jullien.
Jean Jullien is a french artist which were having his first time exhibition at South Korea and he used SC for a month. His area of works consist of some pop-art illustration and it was spreading from the walls until the coffee cup too! Even-though I didn’t find SHK-SJK polaroid pics, I enjoyed my time at SC bcos of Jean Jullien’s works, such a nice refreshing moment.Just hope someday a Jakarta’s coffee shop could also be a place for an art exhibition too.

How to get there:
By Subway. Get off at Hangangjin station (line 6) exit 2. Go straight and turn right, then walk and pass to the bridge until you find the Harley Davidson’s store. At the end of the bridge, you take the left stairway and walk straight until you find the semi-furnished 3 floor building with a white small signboard name Studio Concrete.
