Korean Photo Booth Mania

Read all the exciting things our scholars have been up to!

Today I went with a fellow UCSD student to take pictures in Korean self-service photobooths around Hongdae. It was super fun and I had a blast. I never really used photobooths in America unless it was during prom or at a carnival, but the experience is very different in Korea. These photo booths are very popular and many Koreans on a day out like to go take pictures with friends or even solo. There are a bunch of printed photos in the studio, and people leave their photos on the wall as mementos which I think is really cute.
