Are you a fan of the manga/anime One Piece? Even if you don’t know much about One Piece, do you like this character, Chopper?

I mean… who doesn’t like Chopper??

If you’re in Seoul, and you’re a fan of One Piece, you have to go to this exhibition at the Hongik University Daehakro Art Center.


I don’t want to give everything away, but I can give you a peek of what is there. You can actually enjoy many things in displays that are outside the part that requires a ticket.

 The warning sign says that there is no re-entry, no food allowed, and there is no bathroom inside. More cute warning signs inside! You are not allowed to take pictures of the storyboard of the animation.

There are many places where you can take pictures with the characters. IMG_0198 IMG_0203 IMG_0205 IMG_0217 IMG_0221

 This exhibition made me want to re-read and re-watch some of the best episodes of One Piece 🙂
