Cartoon Cafe Makes You Feel Like You're in a Dream

Anthony Balogne

What if we told you you could visit a real-life 2-dimensional comic book? The cartoon cafe is a white and black world of graphics that will make you feel like you just walked into a movie or video game. 

Many natives love the Korean TV show “W” where the cafe’s idea comes from. In the show created by Lee Jong-suk and Han Hyo-Joo, a young girl can enter the world of comics whenever she chooses to. Eventually, she ends up falling in love with a comic character in the 2-dimensional world.

The Design of the Café

Young Eunjin Lee owns the cafe in Seoul, and she wanted to create something different from the usual. YND239-20 is a delightful spot filled with super cute 2D cartoon artworks, perfect for Instagram pictures and videos. The interior of this bizarre cafe was cleverly conceived to resemble a monochromatic illustrated existence. The real-world optical illusions will have you posting tons of pictures from your pen-and-paper dimension. 

YND239-20’s real-life furniture blends in seamlessly with the wall art — a white paint-through with every object outlined in black pen-like strokes. So it feels like you’re inside a 2-dimensional cartoon world that a madcap artist drew out. The decor includes several cartooned items like zany picture frames, a dog looking through a window, cartoon trays with tea mugs on them, doors, cabinets, flowerpots, and even drawn-back curtains!

Another interesting feature of the cafe is its name YND239-20, which it gets from the Seoul address: Yeon-Nam-Dong 239-20. Lee wanted the cafe to be easy to find and remember.  

Now that the cafe is world-famous, they are looking to expand into a franchise. It will be thrilling to see what other worlds and cool cafe names the franchise has in store for us. We sure hope this comic book cafe comes to our city!
