  • The birthday café tour has recently become a popular travel destination among Hallyu fans. People celebrate their favorite celebrity's birthday or anniversary while collecting various merchandise such as cup holders, photo cards, and postcards provided when ordering a drink. Many birthday cafés are held in Hongdae, where there is a large amount of foot traffic. You can still visit a birthday café even if the celebrity isn’t your favorite, just for merchandise or the event itself, such as a lucky draw. If you want a special photo of your trip to Korea to post on your social media, visit Hongdae right now.


      Jun and Hoshi of SEVENTEEN, Haechan and Taeil of NCT, Chaeryeong of ITZY, Sunoo of ENHYPEN, and Sung Han Bin of ZEROBASEONE were born in June. Meanwhile, BTS and Mamamoo debuted in June. Birthday café schedules are usually uploaded to X, and you can also check them on websites such as Fiveduck or Duk Place.
