Y’know when you’re having one of those days when you just need to be completely smothered by wall-to-wall cute stuff? No? Well, I get that kinda sensation all the time (hence why my apartment is a bubblegum pink Hello Kitty explosion…) When I get that sorta feeling, and a holiday to Tokyo is nowhere to be seen, I like to skip on over to Hongdae for the next best thing…
Wit Wa Comma is a tiny shop totally dedicated to everybody’s favorite lazy bear, Rilakkuma. While it’s easy enough to find Rilakkuma products in Korea, Wit Wa Comma specializes in Japanese imports. Because of this, everything in the shop carries a pretty hefty price tag (at least double the Japanese price, usually.) But, if you aren’t planning on heading to Japan anytime soon, and you really need some limited edition, Japanese-import cuteness in your life, this is the place for you!
Personally, I’d been lusting after the new cat-themed Rilakkuma collection since it came out, but figured I’d never be able to get my hands on any of it in Korea…
So, I paid a pretty stupid amount of money for this tiny notebook and pen…but, when something is THIS stinkin’ cute, it’s gotta be worth it, right?!
Even if you’re not looking to make a purchase, Wit Wa Comma is still a super cute shop to check out! ♥
It’s in a quite random location in Hongdae, but you can find a detailed map (as well as online shopping!) on their website –> here! <–
