It has been over a decade since the last Harry Potter book was released and here I am still hung up on the magical world. I’ll probably love it as long as Prof. Snape loved Lily, dedicate a portion of my future library for everything Hogwarts, and make sure my children and grandchildren read and re-read the books.
Maybe I’ll make HP-themed places too, like the King’s Cross Cafe in Seoul’s Hongdae district. Like Platform 9 3/4 in the series, this cafe is your gateway to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
The four-floor brick building is basically an interactive Harry Potter museum. There’s no entrance fee but you have to buy a drink to go beyond the first floor. That’s really very cheap considering everything you’ll find inside.
Hope you enjoyed that King’s Cross cafe tour! Have to go now. Quidditch game in five minutes! Team captain’s scarier than Ginny!
How to go to King’s Cross Cafe:
Take subway to Hongik University station Exit 9. Cross the street and walk two more blocks until you reach the Tous Les Jours cafe, turn left. Go straight two more blocks then turn right. It’s impossible to miss!
