Opened in July 2009, Star Avenue is one of the place you should visit if you are a Hallyu fan.
Star Avenue contains five different interactive sections, giving visitors unprecedented access to the worlds of their favorite stars. From viewing costumes and accessories donated by Hallyu stars such as Big Bang, TVXQ and Rain to trying on costumes used in dramas. Star Avenue offers something for everyone where the you are a fan of the Korean dramas or Kpop. It’s pretty interesting to view all those costumes and accessories worn by the celebrities up close rather than on TV.
Star Avenue is a cool place to visit if you are Hallyu fan, however, I do hope for the day that there will be a Madame Tussauds Korea Hallyu exhibit in Seoul. It’ll be so cool to be able to view life size wax figures of those K-celebrities. Oh well, I’ll just have to wait for that day to come.
