Looks like Hollywood heartthrob Timothee Chalamet isn't just stealing hearts on screen, he's becoming a bonafide Korean travel influencer too! While in Korea to promote the highly anticipated "Dune: Part Two," Chalamet packed his short visit with delicious eats, trendy shopping, and even a dose of Korean history. Here's how you can follow in his footsteps (minus the screaming fans, hopefully).


Foodie Finds:
  • Meat Lover's Paradise: Craving some sizzling Korean BBQ? Head to "Woo sum" in Yeouido, just like Chalamet did. This restaurant is all about the perfect pairing of succulent Korean beef and sake.

  • Coffee Break with a Twist: Need a caffeine fix with a touch of sophistication? Check out "Edition Denmark" in Seochon. Here, Chalamet enjoyed a cup of their "coffee collective filter coffee," and you can browse their selection of handcrafted teas while you're at it.

So next time you're craving adventure, take a page out of Timothee Chalamet's book. Explore local hidden gems, indulge in delicious food, and soak up some culture. Who knows, you might just become an honorary MZ gen (Jay's tip: it's a term used in South Korea to refer to both Millennials and Generation Z together!) wherever you roam!
