안녕하세요, 여러분! Hi everybody. This is Hyunwoo from TTMIK. We have been making Korean lessons for everybody for five years now, and we love meeting our listeners (you!) in person and talking to them in Korean as well as hearing about how everyone is learning with our lessons.
Until now, however, it has been often difficult to actually meet up with many of you because we did not have an official meeting venue. Some of you have already visited our office before, but we couldn’t really accommodate you well because, well, it’s an office and we have a ton of things going on for the production of the online lessons and books.
그래서 이번 여름에 홍대에 저희 커피숍을 오픈할 예정이에요! ^^
So we are VERY happy and excited to announce that we will be opening our own coffee shop in Seoul this summer!
The coffee shop is going to be in the popular Hongdae district, and we are planning to open it in July. But as for more details about the exact location, launch date, and name of the place, we will share more information very soon, so please stay tuned through our website or one of our social media channels.
We will be running the coffee shop with our friends at Eat Your Kimchi. Having a coffee shop in Seoul to which we can invite our viewers & listeners has long been a dream both for them and for us, so we decided to do this together. Finding a good location for the coffee shop was not easy, but we are happy to have found a really nice place and I am sure you will love it! Now that we have chosen a place, we have already started working on the interior design, menu items, theme, special programs, etc. and we can’t wait to share more news about the coffee shop with you.

In one corner of the coffee shop, we will also have a classroom area where we can (finally!) give regular offline classes for those who live here or visit for a while and want to take Korean lessons by us. We will be having regular meet-ups and lots of other cool events there, but even apart from that, we will make sure that the coffee shop is overall a really nice place to hang out, relax, and have fun.
We can’t wait to see you all there!!! 꼭 놀러오실 거죠? ^^
