Studio Concrete

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset
At Seoul, I had a day trip itinerary 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 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 made him teamed up with some artists and they designed the famous 1 to 10 emotion sweatshirt which was sell by SC. Instead of buying a sweatshirt, to be honest, I came by to see famous actress and actors’ polaroids who wears 1 to 10 emotion sweatshirt.

And they’re none other than Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki! -Yes, I still got DotS’s fever at that time-. SHK is YAI’s noona since they work under the same agency, meanwhile SJK is his 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 and took the pics by wearing it too and have those pics hanged at SC. After had my coffee, I looked around to see the pics and rather than finding 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’s pics, I enjoyed my time at SC bcos of Jean Jullien’s works, such a nice moment. Just hope someday a Jakarta’s coffee shop could also be a place for an art exhibition too.
