Inside South Korea's Unofficial But Totally Cute Godzilla Cafe

Bae Tae Hyun is a big Godzilla fan — so much so that he has opened a cafe to show off his collection. Besides coffee, the cafe also serves up Godzilla cookies!

According to Lexi from Seoul Searching, Bae began collecting Godzilla goods in 2014 after seeing the Hollywood version that was released that year. He started collecting anything and everything related to ‘Zilla, whether it was bootleg or official. He decided that the only place to put his ever-growing collection was in a cafe.

And thus, Cafe Ookii was born.

저희는 오오키이를 단순한 피규어 카페가 아니라 교류의 공간으로 만들고 싶어요. 꼭 고질라에 관심이 없더라도 게임이나 영화, 음악, 애니메이션 등 다양한 문화에 대해서 교류하고 편하게 쉬다 가는 소통의 창구가 되었으면 좋겠습니다. 홍대 쪽 오시면 부담없이 들러서 시원한 음료 한 잔 하고 가세요~! ????????‍♀️ #카페#카페오오키이#오오키이#홍대#홍대카페#레트로#고질라#괴수#동교동카페#경의선책거리#경의선책길#godzilla#cafe#coffee#dessert#cafeookii#figurines#collector#kaiju#カフェ#コーヒー#デザート#おおきい#大きい#レトロ#ゴジラ#怪獣
