I'm sure many K-Pop fans are already familiar with Cofioca, a bubble tea shop in Apgujeong, since it is famously known as a place that idols love to go to.
In particular, EXO's Sehun comes here very often.
As soon as you enter the shop, you will be amazed by all of the signatures posted all over the store.
Anywhere you look, there are idols' autographs!
The autographs go all the way up to the ceiling!
Fans have put cute photo stickers and photo cards by the corresponding idols' signatures, so you will be able to find your faves.
And it's not just Sehun, Kai, Chanyeol, Suho, and the other EXO members who have been here.
GOT7 members Mark, BamBam, Jackson, and Yugyeom have all been here too, along with NCT, Baekho and Minhyun of NU'EST, TVXQ, and Wanna One's Yoon Jisung.
As for the girls, Gugudan, Oh My Girl, and Jeon Somi have been here, among many others.
This corner of the shop has notes that fans have written to the artists.
Now that we've looked around, let's take a look at the menu!
Although this is a small bubble tea shop, they offer quite a large variety to choose from, like chocolate, taro, melon, fruit juices, and more.
We ordered a Chocolate Milk Tea and Taro Milk Tea after asking the friendly shop owner what Sehun and Baekhyun's favorite orders were.
They informed us that Sehun likes Chocolate Milk Tea the most, while Baekhyun's favorite is the Taro Milk Tea
The owner also gave us Sehun photo cards and Suho stickers. Unfortunately, they had run out of Baekhyun stickers and photos, but we were pleased nonetheless!
Chocolate Milk Tea 6,000 won
The taste is milky with a mild chocolate flavor.
It was a little too sweet for us, but if you enjoy sweet drinks, this will be great for you.
Taro Milk Tea 6,000 won
Anyone who likes taro flavor, will definitely like this drink because the milk tea has a strong taro aroma and sweet taste.
Of course when you come here, you can't miss out on the photo opportunity!
Wherever you take a picture, it will come out looking cool since there are literally autographs everywhere, like colorful wall paper.
I asked the owner if Sehun still likes to visit this area often and she said that he does still come to Cofioca, so maybe if you're lucky you will see him!
