Hongdae Dungeon’s latest collaboration event is all about 100 Sleeping Princes and the Kingdom of Dreams, also known as Yume100.
Yume100 is a mobile game released in 2015, which got an internet miniseries adaptation, and most recently a full anime that ended just this past September 20th. The story follows a series of princes who have to save the Kingdom of Dreams from dream thieves. Fairly standard. This anime didn’t really receive much hype or praise for the season and I would qualify it as the Sanrio Boys of the season. However, I am a sucker for collaborations and pretty boys so I went to the event anyway!
The event has a cafe, a photo zone, and special merch for the series.
The drinks are quite cute, albeit expensive. The menu also includes macarons and tteok!
I got the “syuri” macaron that tasted like cheap strawberry jam, it was a nice little snack!
There is lots of merch to choose from and displays that show the character and background design for the series. The main screen of the cafe area is showing the anime, and there is another screen in the photo zone.
As always with events in this venue, there are always free posters of super nice quality for anyone who wants them!
This special event is only lasting a few days, but definitely a must for any fans of the game or anime. Check out the trailer for the anime and the event details below:
