All are excited since Seoul’s coffee chain Caffe Bene announced that they are opening in Eastwood soon. There’s no final date yet of the opening though. But don’t worry JKS fans out there. I think Eastwood is beginning to be a Jang Keun Suk heaven. Just a few days ago I saw a post in Facebook of a fellow Eels Philippines member that there’s an internet shop here that apparently has JKS face all around the shop’s interior. I need to see it for myself so I hurried after my work to take a peek.
It’s the longest standing internet and gaming shop here in Eastwood called Station 168 located at 2/F of City Walk 2. I have been here I guess once this year but I must not be paying so much attention. And so I entered the shop. Upon opening the door I’m so overwhelmed! I looked like a crazy fool when I saw what I saw. Literally there are Jang Keun Suk posters in their walls and even had a calendar in their counter. OMG!
Here is a more close up look at the posters. 🙂
Notice that the calendar is on the July page month and it’s already September. I knew it, even the cashier and sales persons looked for the hottest picture to display. A funny story is that after I took photo of this they immediately changed it to the current month. 🙂 I think they got a little bit shy of the late display but what they didn’t know is I like the July photo better, right girls?
And even before I asked the lady at the counter why they have a JKS calendar my eyes got hooked on some Korean merchandise displayed right in front of me. Yes apart from the JKS posters on the shop walls they are selling some items. And the top display is no other than a Jang Keun Suk sticker set for Php 150.
The super excited me asked if the calendar is on also on sale and I almost jump when they said yes. 🙂 So I thought I’m settled on just buying the calendar and not the sticker when I came across one more item on display. It’s a post-card set of 8 for Php 170.
Wahhh, it’s all so confusing now and yet I still rummaged on all the other merchandise. Look what I have found…a 12-piece poster set for 360 pesos, the same price as the calendar. OMG, what to do? I settled on the calendar and took this photo as souvenir for the poster set. I think I would come back for it on the next payday hehehe.
I had so much fun inside the store. I know the sales staff are all laughing at me but a fangirl will always be a fangirl, who cares right! 🙂 So I took more photos.
Some trivia: I asked the ladies at the counter why they have kpop merchandise and particularly JKS items in the shop…They said that the owner is a Filipino who has a Korean friend in Seoul. Hmmm, so the items are really from Korea, Yey! 🙂
Here is a snapshot of the calendar that I bought for 360 pesos. Thanks Darly for the pictures and I know you would want to buy this! 🙂
So to all JKS fans out there come and go to Eastwood Station 168 now as the JKS stuff stocks are limited. The internet shop is located at the second floor of Eastwood City Walk 2 beside a 7-11 store. Its also right across the location where Caffe Bene will open soon at the ground floor. Happiness right! Now I really love that I’m working in this area. 🙂
