Hakrim Dabang_Coffee with tradition

22 Nov

Today I’m going to introduce about Seoul’s old school coffee shop, “Dabang. ”

Hakrim is perhaps Seoul’s most famous Dabang which maintains original old style, dark wood interior. It was established in 1956 and has refused to be re-branded like today’s café.

Entrance of Hakrim

Korea’s students struggling for democracy used to discuss philosophy, literature and art at this place. The phrase on the sign indicates that.
