THE CAFES OF SEOUL
Blue Square Book Park
The Book Park is located in Blue Square, a culture complex with everything from restaurants and cafes, the Book Park, and and even a performing arts theatre. This space has massive windows, and walls lined with books from the floor to the ceiling. There are several little nooks and lofts where you can literally sit amongst the bookshelves. If you're a book lover, you'll find it both aesthetically pleasing and cozy.
I happily spent the greater part of a Saturday afternoon here waiting out a rainstorm after completing a shoot for The Urban Photographer's Guide to Seoul, and I've never been more content.
Note: BYOB(ook). As I wasn't here book shopping, I'm honestly not sure if any of their books are actually in English.
The Book Park is in the Blue Square complex, located at Hangangjin Station on the brown (9) line, and just outside of exit 2.
