Coffee Prince cafe have some improvement. Looks more pleasant… Great cp mug also.
wow Coffee prince changed so much.. It looks bigger.. did they reconstruct it?
I think my article can answer your quizzes in your hearts. The Coffee Prince café you have seen in “Personal Taste” Episode 8 isn’t the café be located at Hongik University!!! It’s not the original CP café. But it’s ‘CP Simulated Café’ at the MBC Dream Center.
The MBC Dream Center is the big center of Korean Dramas and movies in Korea. There are filming-history museum that people can visit it without tickets. Because of the big building with several studios for mass media, it still is the location for many MBC dramas including The Personal Taste drama.
Furthermore, MBC has simulated ‘The Coffee Prince café’ at this building for the tourists have missed visiting ‘Hongdae Coffee Prince Café’. Let’s go to the counter and order your favorite coffee.
Decoration of this café is look alike the original one. But they are some difference in the similar. The first thing, Ilsan CP Café is looked modern than Hongdae café. I think it may be MBC’s concentration which they proudly present this café as “The next era of Coffee Prince”. If I talk this point by referring the drama, this is an achievement of Han-Gyul’s marketing Project, He told his father about CP Franchises Project. After Eun Chan (Yoon Eun Hye’s role) has studied abroad for 2 years, Han Gyul (Gong Yoo’s role) has the project to open the new coffee café ‘Coffee Princess’ for his lover. This café may be ‘Coffee Princess’? ^^
Do you remember this drawing? Yes, it’s Yoo-Joo drawing at the CP café’s wall. There’re plenty of stories happened including the best kiss scene and the most impressive dialogue between Han Gyul and Eun Chan in CP drama episode 10. Now,it’s on the table.!!! This’s the second points of difference. I thump up with the furniture designers who can keep all details of CP drama perfectly by taking important symbols or things mixed with decoration in the cafe. For example, the coffee-table, they imitated and screened it on the tables. The round ones with squared armchairs, it’s so wally!!!
And the last point, in your latest memories, Seon-Gi must bake waffles for his customers in the kitchen. Mr.Hong and Eun-Chan make cups of coffee at the counter be fulled of making coffee equipment. Your imagination will be changed. Of clause, you will not see ‘Yoon Eun Hye’ make ‘Latte Art’ for you. But I mean ‘the type of counter’.
In CP drama, Constructors and interior designers team has chosen to improve the old kitchen to ‘Bi-opened’ type. It’s useful for waffle baker to do his work comfortably, for Baristas to show their professional skills of making-coffee and for the café that there is some plus area to keep their mixture and equipment. But the Ilsan café, it’s built in the concept I called ‘Finish in one step’. You can see it in another famous food brand or delivery shops such as ‘Dairy Queen Blizzard shop’. They focused their built-in counter on ‘hurry and quality’ Since the customers have busy daily-lives, Baristas’ service must be fast and good. But they still have to keep the taste of coffee in every cup constantly. They can take orders and make the coffee just turn back their moving.
Something I can touch from the Ilsan café is the good memories of CP Drama. Wherever you visit, Hongdae or Ilsan, You will recognize to the cute and sweet scenes. The view beside you will stimulate you to go back your home and watch the series again and again. Around the café, You will see everything you had seen before in the drama; the red artificial shelf Eun-Chan be knocked her head, the blackboard she drew her cartoon and wrote the menu; etc. As a result of wood-designed decoration, you may feel like you are having your tea-break time outside the master café and getting fresh from tree’s smell. Or you can smile happily when you look at the logo of CP on your cup. (Because you may imagine yourselves at the scene Han-Gyul and Eun-Chan tasted her coffee while she was practicing her skill. Others, you may make your mind to be Eun-Soo touching the warmness of her cup while she must face with her ex-boyfriend, Jin-Ho.^^)
If you don’t care about the cost of coffee, Choi Bo Mi (the general manager of this café) and his baristas are waiting for you. Don’t forget to visit and realize to your sweet memories about ‘ The 1st shop of Coffee Prince’ dramas (and the ‘Personal Taste’ Episode 8 Especially Yoon Eun Hye’s parts,too.)
