Seoul COEX Character Goods Store, ‘KAKAO FRIENDS’

KakaoTalk has become an integral part of everyday life to the extent that it’s hard to imagine life without it. Building on the success of KakaoTalk, the Kakao Group has developed and sells character products based on the emoticons used in KakaoTalk. One can find these products at the ‘KAKAO FRIENDS’ store.


KAKAO FRIENDS stores can be found in various locations, including COEX. COEX is designed like a maze, making it a bit challenging to navigate. Fortunately, the KAKAO FRIENDS store is right next to the ‘Byeolmadang Library,’ so finding it is relatively easy if you locate the library first.

“A Small but Well-Stocked Store”

The KAKAO FRIENDS store at COEX may not be as large as others you might find elsewhere. Nevertheless, it’s a store that has a bit of everything. You can discover interesting products based on the characters seen in KakaoTalk throughout the store.

Now, you can purchase unique and fun items based on the characters from KakaoTalk, which have become deeply ingrained in our daily lives. If you’re looking for interesting souvenirs at COEX, it’s a great place to visit.
