They said that there’s a new exciting exhibition in Seoul! Let’s check out what’s inside the Flowers by Naked in Hongdae!
Doing our September mission for the Global Seoul Mates I got the chance to visit one of the featured places introduced by Song Kang in his Energy of Seoul video. The video was about the lively and energetic beautiful spots in the city. If you haven’t seen the video, you can watch it on Visit Seoul TV on Youtube.
Well, going back to the main topic, there’s a new digital exhibition located in Hongdae which has been being famous over the internet. It started last April 30 and I think will last until December 31 this year.
What is Flowers by Naked?
It’s an indoor exhibit was called ‘Flowers By Naked’ where you can able experience different kinds of flowers. When I saw it with my own eyes I said it was so magical and whimsical. There are eight different zones inside so let me share with you what’s it all about. This was located on the 4th floor of AK & Hongdae, and you’ll see it right away.
But before that, we booked our ticket at Naver with my friend Paula for reservation but still, walk-ins can still purchase tickets because honestly, it’s not too crowded due to corona. First, before entry, we got our two tickets, then scan our QR codes, and explained to us what do we need to do and do not do inside, then scan our tickets. So since it’s an indoor exhibit, the mask should be worn on all premises.
So let the magic begin!
Big Book (이야기의 시작)
As we entered, we saw a garden with a large digital book that turns its pages into different seasons. The flowers are so nice and I felt like I was in a magical place.
I also enjoyed the tiny bubbles that suddenly burst out of the ceiling. It was just the start but I felt like I wanna stay here forever.
Chill (저는 꽃잎과 피어나는 생명)
The next zones show the changing season from winter to spring. The snow is falling while the cherry blossom leaves are filling the air.
Dandelion (평화의 바람)
I’ve posted this on my TikTok and you watch the video on how it works. I’ve read from an article that before you can blow at the Dandelion but due to corona, they changed it by clapping your hands.
Glowing Garden (설렘의 황홀경)
As you open the dark curtain for the next zone, I saw shining mirrors that will give you magical illusions. You’ll be able to see your reflection in the mirror while the colors of the flowers are changing.
Big Flower Garden (향기로운 초대)
On the next path, big flowers will say hi to you. If you get close to the flowers it will show you petal animations behind.
It was really cool and I think I keep on coming back to each of the flowers many times.
Spring Trail (봄의 오솔길)
When you’re busy playing with the Big Flowers, I think you’ll not notice the spring trail unless you are familiar with the different zones of the Flowers by Naked.
It was beautifully decorated with different flowers and lightens up the trail of the garden.
Cherry Blossom Garden (핑크빛 벚꽃정원)
At first, I thought this was already the last zone but it’s not. It’s actually the main attraction of the exhibit where you can experience cherry blossoms all year round.
You can take hundreds of photos here while posing under the tree or while touching the Flower. Flower petals will appear when you touch the wall just like the one in the video.
Secret of Secret Garden (비밀 실험실)
This is the last stop of the exhibition that looks like a flower laboratory where you can touch and smell the flowers. Though I didn’t tough any because the glasses were breakable and I don’t want to break any.
When you get out from the last stop, you’ll see a souvenir shop where you can buy some postcards and others. It was late to see that they also have a locker where you can rent and put your belongings.
Aside from the gift shop, they also have a cafe named BitesN where you can able to get a 10% discount when you see the Flowers by Naked exhibition.
The cafe served different kinds of beverages like coffee, ade, smoothies, and others. They also have signature cakes which cost 12,000 won.
