K-pop Fandom, Travelogue0 Comments;

Hey everyone! It’s the bff here again :P
I’m back because this entry is gonna be about my husband JYJ Jae Joong’s cafe in Myeongdong. Sorry but you have to bear with the fangirling again LOL XD

Some of you may have known that Cafe J Holic is the second cafe that Jae Joong open; the first being Coffee Cojjee which was located in the expensive area of Cheongdam. It was located in the same building as the famous Korea celebrity hair salon The Red Carpet. Coffee Cojjee was really crowded the last time I was there in August 2013. Other than Jae Joong’s fans, there were usually people waiting around in the cafe to spot celebrities who go to the hair salon. But anyway, Jae Joong withdrew his investment in Coffee Cojjee in late 2013 and opened Cafe J Holic in Nov/Dec 2013. Okay, enough with the boring history :P


From Myeongdong Station, take Exit 6, turn left and walk down the famous Myeongdong street. Just walk straight on the main street to the 3rd T-junction (Nature Republic/Uniqlo being the first T-junction), and turn left into the smaller street. Next turn right into another small street and Cafe J Holic will be on your left. Do look up and spot the yellow signboard as the cafe is located on the 3rd and 4th floor. (Alternatively, you can enter from the 4th T-junction where you will see Laneige; turn left at Laneige then turn left again into the small street where Cafe J Holic will be on your right).

Address: 54-6 Myeongdong 2-ga, Chung-gu, Seoul, Korea (Level 3 & 4)


Look out for the yellow sign! You can enter the cafe from the MAG/MAG store – walk in and take the stairs up.


Here we are! You will see a mirror with the “HOLIC SOUL” tattoo on the way up. This “tattoo” is similar to the real tattoo that Jae Joong has on his back which says “TVfXQ SOUL”. Come Cassies, let make a circle, hug and cry T_T

So… on the 3rd floor, it is where the ordering counter, merchandise and most of the seating is. There is also a smoking room, meeting room, JH room and JJ Room on the 4th floor! (more…)
