This week, the wonderful collaboration cafe for Doukyusei has opened in Seoul. Boy’s love events are common in Seoul but they are usually within doujin communities, so of course I had to go check out something more accessible.
The cafe is being held in collaboration with M&H books, who also hosted the Kizuna Ai cafe. I can’t stress enough how wonderful this store is, and how kind the people who manage it are, I hope you can all check it out! The occasion of the cafe is celebrating 10 years of the Doukyusei manga.
The entire space is decorated with stands, posters, and images of Rihito and Hikaru. The movie soundtrack is playing in the background which gives the cafe a super calm atmosphere, although when I got there the place was completely packed! Like I mentioned before, BL is especially popular in Korea amongst women, so I was almost not surprised to see this many people.
The store has also made a number of beautiful goods available with ranging prices. There is definitely something out there for all ends of your budget.
When it comes to collaboration cafes in Seoul, I have to say M&H are my favorite organizers. Their drinks and items are so worth the money, and you really get quality for the price you pay. All the drinks and deserts looked amazing, and I chose the Soboro Choux, which was like Pate a Choux but Soboro pastry version. For 3,500 won it had an amazing taste and value!
Every Tuesday and Friday the cafe will also be projecting the movie at 5:30, so come enjoy that if you want. Check out the trailer below.
As always, M&H has managed to create a wonderful cafe perfect for fans of the manga, it is unmissable if you liked the movie too. Please come support M&H and enjoy this amazing place!
