Fans of K-pop, BTS fans in particular, will be familiar with the popular show Run BTS. 

Cafe Camptong was used as the filming location for episodes 118 and 119. 

We headed over to the café to take pictures just like the members of the boy band!

Even those not familiar with the TV show will soon realize that having the popular boy band coming to your café is a big deal.

Entering the café, we found the mirror where Jimin, RM and other BTS members took selfies.

We just had to take a few pictures ourselves before heading to the counter to order our drinks.

As mentioned before, Cafe Camptong is huge!

It has five floors, each impressively wide, so take a moment and look around before you choose a seat.

When we saw the pink curtains, we realized that this is the spot where V stopped to take some gorgeous photos. 

One thing that we really like about the café is that they put up pictures next to the spots where BTS were seen in the show.

This way we don't have to roam around trying to locate the spots all on our own.

While waiting for our drinks, we looked around to see what else the café has on display.

Soon we started to suspect that the owner might be a member of the ARMY, because everywhere we looked we saw BTS magazines, books and albums!

The interior of the café is fairly plain-looking, with plenty of polished concrete and wooden tables and chairs.

But there are also many small and cute decoration details in window sills and elsewhere. 

You can also get a stamp to put in your book as a proof of your visit!

Matcha Chocolate Latte

It was rich in flavor without being too sweet. It lived up to the hype as one of the signature drinks of the café. 

New on the menu, Matcha Chocolate Latte was also interesting. It turned out that the aroma and taste of matcha go perfectly with chocolate! 

Mini Earl Grey Cake in shape of a cube

Mini Earl Grey
4,200 won

Although it is not served hot, it's still soft, and the earl grey aroma is very pleasant. 

The cream inside the cake is light and not overly sweet, so don't worry about it being too rich.

Cafe Camptong's best-selling dessert, Egg Tart

Egg Tart
4,600 won

You'll soon understand the reason for it's popularity. The tart is crunchy and delicious, without being too sweet.

The tart shell is quite thick, making it a challenge to cut!

Mirror on staircase at Cafe Camptong, where BTS visited

Having enjoyed drinks and cakes, we decided to explore the other floors of the café. 

BTS sure know how to take advantage of their surroundings in order to take great pictures.

This mirror on the stairs leading to the next floor is a hot photo spot that the members were quick to identify.

Oh, and did you notice?

On top of (or rather at the foot of it!) the seven BT21 characters are all gathered!

With the show running on the screen in the background, it makes you feel like they are still recording as you sit down!

There's a staircase from the forth floor leading up to the rooftop on the fifth floor. Unfortunately, it was closed when we visited the café. 

We've been told that you can get an excellent view of the city from the rooftop, so definitely head up there if it's open when you visit.
