1-Minute Caricature at Coffee Bangatgan in Bukchon, Seoul, South Korea

Have you seen one of the latest episodes of The Return of Superman? Rohee, one of the girls on the show, got a one-minute caricature done at a cafe… and was not really happy about it haha *the caption says, “믿을 수가 없어,” which means, “I can’t believe it.”


Here’s how you can get the same caricature as her!

From Anguk Station exit 2, go straight and turn left at at the next big street. Turn right and go to the street on the right at the fork. You’ll see the cafe at the end of the street.


You can either get a drink inside or for take-out. When you order the drink, you should mention that you want to get the caricature as well (You can’t get the caricature without the drink). It’s cheaper when you get the drinks for take-out.

The entrance is on the left side of the take-out counter.


The inside is also filled with the cafe owner’s artwork. IMG_0799

After sitting inside for an hour or so, my friend and I paid for the drink and the caricature and waited to get our faces drawn.

Make sure to bring cash for the 1000 KRW caricature! The cafe owner said that he uses all sales of the caricature for donations.


What do our faces look like to the cafe owner…?!

We had to hang our pictures to let the ink dry.

My friends told me it doesn’t look like me but it was still funny. 😀
It seems like all the 1-minute caricatures he draws has the same faces…
