Lotte Mall, Grevin Museum & NSeoul Tower

What to do on another chilly winter day in Seoul?
Euljiro 1-ga Station. From Exit 1
Dec 27: On our 4th day in Seoul, it was still very cold and we had another free and easy morning. I actually planned a food trip in Noryanjin market to eat king crabs but we had enough crabs from previous night's buffet. We ended up having lunch at Lotte Hotel Seoul which is along the way to Grevin Museum. We also passed by the Star Avenue where there were handprints of Hallyu or Korean Wave stars like Kim Soo Hyun from My Love From Another Star and Choi Ji Woo from Winter Sonata.

The Queen and Mommy Edna
There's a floor for Hollywood and World icons which my parents and aunts truly enjoyed.
The other Queen, Yuna
I am admittedly already deep into Korean pop culture that I was star strucked to see South Korea's ice queen's wax figure. Kim Yuna is one of the biggest sports stars, an Olympic gold medalist for figure ice skating.

Aside from the wax figures, we also enjoyed the interactive games like the quiz battle on this classroom. We played a trivia game and we got competitive because the scores were displayed on the screen/blackboard.
My mommy accidentally added a beard =))
In "Discovery Atelier" we're able to see the step by step process of molding and creating a virtual 3D model of ourselves. It's fascinating that they've spent months to mold one and designers or celebrities lend the museum something out of their wardrobes.

The Heirs' Park Shin Hye

I was on full on fan girl mode on the 'Hallyuwood' floor. It was a fun experience to 'hang out' with these icons from my favorite K-dramas, even though we knew that they're not real =)))
Myeongdong Station Exit 8
From Grevin Museum, we went back to Lotte Hotel to do some grocery shopping on Lotte Mart. We ended our night with a mini hike to N-Seoul Tower. It was an uphill climb to go to the Namsan cable car but it's a must try for my family so that they can see Seoul's skyline from top view.

If you want to stay indoors, visit Grevin Museum, shop inside Lotte Mall and trek N'Seoul Tower to view the Seoul skyline through the Observatory deck!
