KakaoTalk: Meet the Kakao Friends at Coex Mall

Are you ready to meet some great 프렌즈 (friends)?

Well, then you should head out to Coex mall before February 28th so visit the Kakao Friends store while it’s still around!

If you aren’t familiar with KakaoTalk, it’s currently the most popular chatting application for smartphones in Korea. For those living outside of Korea, it’s a great way to connect with Koreans and keep in touch with friends who are here.

At the Kakao Friends store, you can take pictures with the KakaoTalk celebrity emoticons that everyone loves so much.

There have also been sightings of the Kakao Friends characters walking around the mall. Depending on what day you go, you might run into the Kakao Friends. The great part is that they all emulate the characters personality. If you ask Tube to take a picture together, he will throw a fit!
