Some of you guys may remember the weekly K-pop stall held in Seoul Bakery called ‘Ho Ho’s K-pop Shop’. Well Ho Ho is back, and it’s taken over the downstairs of Seoul Bakery at Tottenham Court Road, London. Seoul Bakery’s downstairs was previously host to a hairdresser’s, but is now a haven of sorts for the local K-pop aficionado.
The K-pop treasure trove of Ho Ho’s K-pop Shop sells a variety of K-pop and Korean goods. From CDs to posters, to those little chibi socks not meant for big feet – no matter how I do try. They also sell Korean snacks at their café, a nice compliment to their restaurant upstairs. The café stocks a variety of sweets and treats, also selling different flavours of Korean tea – such as Aloe Tea and Buckwheat Tea.
The prices of the CDs range from £18-21 for your regular CDs and £40 upwards for the limited collectors editions. Though not the cheapest, the prices are roughly equivalent of what you’d pay online – only you get it instantly. The posters sell for £1-4 each, the cheaper posters being non-official and the more expensive being those you’d get with your CDs.
Everything is brought back from Korea by the store’s owner, so if there’s something you’d like that’s not in stock then make sure you request it. They won’t know what’s in demand until you ask!
