Still on Day 3 - Saturday, 22 Oct 2016 (see part 1 here)
I'm starving already so time to hop on the next place that I missed yesterday and get my lunch there, SM Town COEX Artium, found this place by reading some references and planning to visit this place suddenly, at first I didn't plan to. From Anguk Station heading to Samseong Station (Samsung) Exit 5 or 6, and having late lunch at McDonald haha..general junkfood restaurant that you may find mostly wherever you are and became my saviour.
It's interesting to see their order system, no need to queuing like usual and order your food, they have more and more automatically way to do that. All you can do is just heading to the one of LED and order from that big screen, get your queue numbers and heading to the cashier to pay since I am foreigner so I need to pay cash but for local, they could pay with their local card. Pay and wait for your numbers to be called, the tricky thing is they do have screen but the numbers to be called is totally random, so stay awake and don't miss the screen to see your number stated on the screen, since they mention the number in Korean haha. It's kinda a new experience for me and I love seeing new things :) I am ordering burger, french fries and mineral water for KRW 4,000.

Finished and get ready to SM Town COEX Artium, time to meet my long lasting favorite idol from time to time :) did you still remember who are they? hehe, you will spot the place right away since they have big signage that you won't missed it. There are 5 floors and each floor consist of different part, once you enter the building you will see SM Town artist pictures everywhere.
So, 1F Welcome Zone, 2F SUM (Celebrity Shop) you can shop your idol souvenirs here such as hat, t-shirt, CD, mug etc., 3F SM Town Studio, if you want to experience real artist things such as vocal/dance training, M/V studio, photo shoot, recording etc, they have some packages. 4F SM Town SUM Cafe/Market, like the name, it's cafe, some cute SM Town idol cakes are there, quite pricey, the decoration looks nice, you can also buy some souvenirs, I forgot what floor but they also display the awards which won by their artist also many pictures with the signs. 5/6F SM Town Theatre, you can watch some shows and they also put 3D print out statue, very big, almost the same size like the real one, I met Changmin :) where's Uknow Yunho? but too bad there isn't. Anyway I will make another special blogpost for SM Town Coex Artium.

|Found Dalkomm Coffee at Apgujeong Rodeo Street|
|The Galleria Mall|
Walked to the nearest bus station and asking a help about what bus number to go to Gangnam-gu Office Subway, so I hopped into the bus and take the subway to Central Park area at Incheon, it's quite far and took a long time, it was almost 2 hours from Apgujeong and it became longer since there was bit unexpected thing happened and kinda delayed my time more than an hour.
|lining up for refund :)|
|got help from a guy to ask some directions|

I wander around the park along the way to Dalkomm Coffee. Walking and walking, it's pretty far actually, when I walked that night, I arrived Central Park around 6.30 - 7 PM, walking through the park and I spotted interesting things, so many people gather there, it's White Rose lights! so there are so many white rose LED at night, they will turn on the light and it looks so beautiful. The park was so crowded. I went there a while then continue my way to Dalkomm Coffee.

Felt excited to be inside the coffee shop, and my friend took a seat right in front of the spot where the filming happened, Descendants of The Sun Episode 2, you may see the dolls sitting face each other and also big captain doll. I ordered the same drink like Captain Yoo had in the drama in another episode since they filmed in Dalkomm Coffee a lot and in another branch, Welchesher Red (KRW 4,800) the taste was sour! hahaha..enough to wake me up at that night. Kinda feels good to be in the cafe and have a break since I walked too much from the morning. We went back to Seoul around 8.30 PM.
