K-Wave Experience

Gangnam & Southern Seoul

Upstairs from the Gangnam Tourist Center, this is the place to live out all your K-Pop fantasies, with a full makeover to transform you into a K-Pop star. Choose from a wardrobe of clothing, wigs and bling, as well as make-up, for that cheesy photo op. Also here is a bunch of CDs, DVDs and kitschy K-Wave souvenirs.
