Special Seoul Trip for ARMY
See & Do Tours
This year marks the 5th anniversary since BTS’s debut. From 'No More Dream', their debut song in 2013, and 'I Need You', which promoted BTS’s name to many people around the world with its 100 million views, to 'Fake Love', which was honored as the top-ranked song on Billboard’s charts, BTS has achieved great things after shedding their blood, sweat, and tears. Let’s be a proud ARMY(the name of BTS’s fan club) and follow in the footsteps of BTS in every corner of Seoul.
Shinchon iZone Pop – Cafe &Gather – Geujib – Achasan
This premium arcade served as the background of BTS’s 3rd official album Love Yourself including their hit song 'DNA'. BTS’s uniquely addictive and outstanding music complements the ambience of iZone Pop. Then, let’s go over to the basketball court where Jimin was holding a basketball and pump and Jung-kook was sitting to feel the artists’ ambiance and warmth. This arcade operates by the hour and has various gaming facilities including coin singing rooms, wack-a-mole, arcade shooting games, and Tekken. Also, there are lockers that keep visitors’ belongings so that they can freely enjoy games.

In Cafe &Gather, BTS made coffee on their own at the Run BTS Barista episode on V LIVE. During the missions, they made various types of drinks, but now there are only Jin’s sweet and aromatic Rosie Latte and Jimin’s soft creamy latte. The most famous part of the cafe, located in Hannam-dong, is the neon sign that you see as you walk in. BTS members took a photo underneath it, which is how it became famous. The cool pink neon sign is perfect for SNS uploads as well. There are people waiting in line to take a photo with the neon sign but I recommend waiting to have a photo. It’s worth it.

This year is BTS’s 5 year anniversary. In the BTS FESTA video, the members congratulated, gave messages, and talked about what they wanted to do together in a video. The party where the video was filmed was held in Geujib in Yangjae-dong and numerous ARMYs have been here already. A cozy interior decorated with care makes visitors feel comfortable. Its signature dishes are carbonara tteokbokki and bee hive cream shrimp. Just like BTS gave toasts to celebrate its 5th anniversary, what about ordering some cool beer and tasty food and give toasts like BTS. Whoa!
