No guys, sit down. This is not some sort of Man from the Star UFO, okay.
This is actually a very, and I mean very, avantgarde style of architecture which has been one of the biggest attractions in Dongdaemun.
It's the Dongdaemun Design Plaza and it houses design exhibits and collections.

The Dongdaemun Design Plaza is one of the most beautiful architectural pieces in modern Seoul if you ask me. I just couldn't find that blog but it showed pictures of its interior, and boy was I blown away by its beauty! I have always been a fan of zen styles and minimalist approaches so this building kinda serves as heaven to me.

Many Korean dramas had filmed their scenes there with well, Man from the Star being the most recent (I suppose!) It's an interesting place to visit, and being in Dongdaemun, I don't think it is that difficult to reach. It is literally surrounded by shopping malls because the district is a shopping district, and among the shopping centers in the area is Lotte Fitin, the mall in which some members bought shoes after losing a bowling game.

Anyway, let me just add this here:

This is exactly where they bought the kimbap rolls, and until now, I am quite amused why they had to travel so far to get to Dongdaemun from Seongbuk-dong just to buy their snacks. LOL.
This place is just across the Dongdaemun Design Plaza and is quite easy to locate.
Even that place where Minwoo was kicked in front of so many people by Gayeon, it's just across this small street.
