Yeouido is a central business hub in Seoul, famous for its skyscrapers and corporate HQs. However, recent leisure additions to Yeouido, such as The Hyundai Seoul, has made the area popular with folk from all walks of life, including bookworms. If you love reading or exploring book shops, visit BANDI/LUNI’s, the coolest library in Seoul.
Welcome to BANDI/LUNI’S, Seoul’s coolest library and bookstore with the modern atmosphere of Yeouido. At BANDI/LUNI’S there are 2 floors of books for you to browse, so come enjoy a relaxing afternoon of literary escape.
Of course, the first thing you’ll see when you walk in are new arrivals and best sellers. Whether you read Korean or not, it’s interesting to see which books are flying off the shelves with Korean readers!
The shelves are neatly organised by fiction and non-fiction so you can make a beeline for the genre you love most.
There is also a large area devoted to economics and business management books, likely to appeal to the office workers that frequent the Yeouido area each day. Furthermore, if I worked in Yeouido, I would love to come and relax at BANDI/LUNI’S during free time.
And here is an entire section on works related to travelling!
A Cup of Tea and a Good Book
There is no better combination than a cup of tea and a good book. However, at BANDI/LUNI’S cafe, there is more than just tea. Why not enjoy a latte or smoothie, or even a toasted bagel.
Grab your beverage and book and take a seat wherever you like. Additionally, as we’re in Korea, there is no pressure for you to get up and leave once you finish your drink.
Alternatively, once you’ve finished your drink, head back to the cafe for another! Or even try a slice of cake or pastry.
Home & Stationery Shop
On the 2nd floor, you’ll find an adorable home and stationery shop with everything from desk-top trinkets to gifts.
Buy yourself a useful stationery kit or notepad…Or, splurge on a cuddly kitty plushie, because why not?
Furthermore, there is an electronics section with headphones, speakers and other accessories available.
Coolest Library in Seoul?
Heck yeah. The fact that BANDI/LUNI’S is one of the few interesting book stores in Yeouido makes it seem like a hidden gem. What’s more, the modern yet cosy-feel makes it a favourite among Seoul readers, like Starfield Library. From fantasy novels to economic textbooks, your sure to find a book that suits you.
