Inside the crazy café which looks like diners are sitting in a real life comic

Is it an optical illusion? Or a comic book? This peculiar cafe in South Korea will surely leave your head spinning for a second as you enter the restaurant to have a coffee.

Cafe Yeonnam-dong, known as Greem Cafe in Seoul opened in 2017 and everything inside from the decor to the furniture and crockery have a striped black-and-white cartoonish aesthetic.

The real-life cafe was intentionally designed and decorated to make sure its customer feels that they are inside a cartoon.

The cafe is said to have taken inspiration from the Korean TV hit W – Two Worlds, where the main characters can enter a fantasy webtoon world, MailOnline reported.

A video of the cafe has resurfaced online leaving the social media users shocked.

Shared by Science Girl on X, the caption reads, “There is a cafe in South Korea where everything is monochrome and like a drawing, making you feel like you are in a storybook. It’s called Cafe Yeonnam-dong 239-20”

The video has over 15.8 million views on X with many users flocking to the comment section of the post. One wrote: “Looks sketchy.”

Another said: “I wouldn’t be able to drink a sip in there. It makes me dizzy.”

One of the visitors who had been to the cafe wrote on TripAdvisor: “I saw this place on Instagram few months ago, so I decided to go, once in Seoul. It’s not really easy to reach it: once you get off to Metro Station, you have to walk about 20 minutes.

“It’s a really nice and, for sure, a unique place: it’s like having coffee in a comic! Food and coffee are ok, but nothing special.”

The design of Cafe Yeonnam-dong 239-20 creates a 2D optical illusion, that makes customers feel as though they have crossed dimensions into a comic book illustration.

Instagram influencers have jumped at the chance to have their picture taken inside, with even the cardboard food boxes having a black outline, looking like they’ve been drawn onto the setting.

The same goes for the coffee shop’s mugs, which give the illusion your hot drink is somewhat floating in a TV programme.

The only objects that appear real are the flower decorations on the tables, which are typical of what you’d see in any cafe or restaurant around the world.

The venue itself has been dubbed as small by reviewers, but many have claimed that adds to the aesthetic of the untouched comic book illusion.

Customers enter and begin to feel like the main star in their own cartoon show.
