How to meet Song Joong Ki (part 2)

How to meet Song Joong Ki? Read my blog and see my experience at Doota Duty Free! It’s Descendants of the Sun feels!

Doota Duty Free is a department store filled with designer clothes, bags, and shoes. They also sell cosmetics and perfumes. Shopping is not the reason why I went there. I went there to see Song Joong Ki!

I rode the subway going to Dongdaemun History and Culture Park Station. Then, I got off at Exit 5 and went to the Dongdaemun Design Plaza. I didn’t spent much time there because I really wanna explore the Doota Duty Free. Doota Mall can easily be seen because of this handsome endorser.

The mall dedicated one whole floor for the movie, “Descendants of the Sun.” They imitate the set of the drama to lure tourists with theme photo zones and drama souvenirs.

This is how the whole floor looks like:

They also sell some souvenirs like albums, calendars, pillows, and stuffed toys.

You’re not a fan of Descendants of the Sun if you don’t know them! ๐Ÿ™‚

They also have a place where you can watch the OST of the drama.

PS. They gave me some Song Joong Ki post cards for free! Yay!

  3. Hello, any idea until when po kaya open for public ang DOTS exhibit sa Doota Duty Free? Parang may nabasa po kasi ako na special exhibit lang sya at anytime ay pede na rin nila alisin. Sana abutan ko pa. Thanks po! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I can’t remember exactly but I think it’s on the 11th floor of Doosan Tower, 3rd floor of Doota Duty Free. Just click the button on the elevator labelled as “K-Wave”. ????
