Visitting TMI & Studio Concrete, Restaurant & Art Gallery Owned by Yoo Ah In in Seoul

By Lalla Pratami - Jumat, Juli 06, 2018

Since Yoo Ah In is one of my bias, visitting his restaurant & art gallery is one of mandatory list in my itinerary when I travel to Seoul. I specifically put TMI (Too Much Information) and Studio Gallery as places to be visited to. Luckily, both of locations are near other places that I would like to visit and easy to reach as well. I would like to share my experience visitting these places during my Seoul Trip :)

TMI: Too Much Information

TMI is a small vegan/vegetarian friendly restaurant owned by Yoo Ah In. They serve western foods; such as mushroom burgers, shrimp burgers, and french fries. They only use organic products, by the way. The location is in Itaewon area, but however the nearest subway station is Noksapyeong station.

I went to this restaurant on Friday, since there is a mosque (the only one in Seoul actually!) in Itaewon where my husband did his friday pray there. So after dropping him to Seoul Mosque, my son and I went to TMI right away. I relied on Google Maps a lot to this place.

The restaurant is quite small, but the interior is stylish and modern--all in black and white. If you came from Itaewon Station, this restaurant will be on your left. I ordered green mushroom burger package and water, and it was good. I like the fried vegetables that come with this package too. One of the staff used to work in Indonesia, so I had a little chit chat while enjoying their meal. As I visit this restaurant in the afternoon, and I don't drink alcohol, I didn't try their cocktails or beers. FYI, this place will "change" its role as small pub in the night.

This place is also one of the place that Songsong Shipper must visit! If you remember once Song Joong Ki showing his photo with Yoo Ah In and Song Hye Kyo during his Fan Meeting, this is the place where the photos were taken hahaha.

How to get there:
Noksapyeong station Exit 3 or Itaewon station Exit 3. Then, follow direction from Google Maps ;)

Studio Concrete

Studio Concrete is an Art Gallery where Yoo Ah In becomes its CEO. As it's a gallery, you will see different exhibition from time to time. Sometimes in between, Studio Concrete will be closed for few days when installing the upcoming exhibition--so better you check to their instagram before visitting.

Beside enjoying arts here, you can also enjoy their coffee and rest your legs for a while. I tried their vanilla latte and it was good. I enjoy my time here, it reminds me of my hipster days lol. The location itself is only 2 stations away from TMI, so I visitted Studio Concrete after lunch at TMI.

PS: Studio Concrete is also famous with their T-Shirts and Sweatshirts. You might see Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo (again, I know) wearing their designs several times. Yoo Ah In even wore it in his Like for Likes movie.

How to get there:
Hangangjin Station, Exit 2. Google Maps here
