Last week, I attended my first cupholder birthday event for the leader of DAY6, Sungjin. If you don’t already know of DAY6, I highly recommend them if you’re into soft rock/alternative music. They’re so talented! If you never heard of them do yourself a favor today and check out their music.
Huge shoutout to my friend Cate for letting me know about this event! The cafe wasn’t too far from where I live and it ran from (1/16-1/19) so I made plans to go visit as soon as I had some free time. I actually thought I had missed out on the event because I thought it ended on the 18th but I doubled checked and found out it actually ended on the 19th so I made it my goal to visit on Sunday.
The Sungjin birthday cupholder event was held at a 꽃뜨루/Kkottru cafe. The cafe already had the cutest floral/cozy aesthetic decor but with all the pictures of Bob everywhere, it just made the area 10x cuter!
I went to the cafe with a friend on the last day of the event (1/19). We were some of the last people to attend the cafe and were the last ones to leave, minus the fan club that hosted the event. The fan club didn’t say anything to us (probably because we’re foreigners) they could’ve at least said thank you for supporting the event. They even took down the decorations as soon as my friend got up to take pictures of the decor which I thought was rude. Hopefully, next time we’ll run into nicer My Day.
A look at the window display from the inside. I wish I would’ve taken a picture of the outside before they took the decorations down. ㅠㅡㅠ
This was my favorite display in the Cafe. I love all the DAY6 Denimalz characters! Would you like to see some Denimalz crochet patterns?
The cafe still had Christmas decorations up! haha
I love the turquoise blue color in the cafe, it’s perfect for the DAY6!
Some of the cute baked goods from the cafe. They also had a bunch of macarons in various flavors. South Korea loves macarons!
They had was this section with pen and paper where you could write a message to Bob Sungjin. Not sure how they planned on sending the messages to him but if these events are hosted by fan clubs they must know where to send them right?
Anyways, I didn’t write a message because I didn’t know what to write but thinking about it now I probably could’ve just drawn something or just write something in my basic Korea. Oh well! haha
When you purchase a drink, they gave you a Sungjin cupholder and a set of photo cards. On the back of the photocards are calendars! I think you get more photo cards/calendars at the Wonpil birthday event (his birthday is in May) and you continue until you get a complete DAY6 calendar. and stickers, my favorite is the one with the Pikachu! I also decided to get the bear macaron because of the #aesthetic.
I ordered an iced caramel coffee. It tasted alight, just your standard caramel coffee. The macaron’s filling was a dark chocolate chip which I didn’t like (hate dark chocolate). However, the shell of the macaron was super sweet to the point where I couldn’t even taste the filling so I finished it! haha
Here is a closer look at the photos. The photos on the left (the ones with the bears) are actually stickers! I can’t wait to make a spread with them in my journal! haha
Have you been to a K-pop birthday event before?
