  • A fun browse and great place for picking up the essential small items you need from greeting cards to pouches to framed works of art. Every single item is designed and made (hand-made, in many cases) by local Korean designers.
  • Looking for something unique? This is a place/shop you must visit!! Located in Hongdae University area which is famous for its exceptional artistic vibe and energy, KEY shop is where you can find contemporary and creative Korean handcraft items! From souvenir to gift, exhibition to shopping, this place offers varieties of exciting and interesting things to buy and to do. As a social enterprise which promotes and supports independent artists and small scale procures, we go through careful curation to introduce the fine work of independant handmakers/artist (and it is even reasonably priced!) It is highly recommended if you are looking for something that are not just mass- produced and "soul-less" but "soul-full" items with unique perspective and witty interpretation made by "hands" of contemporary Korean creators!
  • There were a lot of cute props. I was able to meet a variety of works by amateur artists.

  • People who like real cute stationery want to go there once. There were only a number of cute and varied phrases, so my eyes were turned upside down and i was distracted by the sight. I would definitely go back to hongdae area to visit this place.

  • There are many cute and pretty items such as postcards, stamps, pottery bowls, and eco-bags by amateur writers. It's a great place to stay. A lot of fun!
