Is there anyone who prefers reading paperbacks than digital content? There is something about reading books in the library that can’t be guaranteed by scrolling down the screen on your laptop or even kindle. Let alone the smell of books, the atmosphere that libraries and book cafes provide is indeed unique, and definitely something that could spice up your reading experience. Hf will now introduce some Indie bookshops in Seoul that are popular but not widely-known.

雖然數碼化的產物佔據我們大部份的生活,但相信有不少人仍然喜歡把紙本捧在手上的那份獨特感。在圖書館內看書是有一種不能被電腦或kindle所能取代的感覺。除了書本所發出的書卷氣味外,圖書館和Book Café的氛圍也是獨一無二的。現在就讓Hf為你介紹在首爾的一些很受歡迎卻不是廣為人知的獨立書店,下次到首爾旅遊又有新地方可去了!

YOUR-MIND (유어 마인드)

YOUR-MIND is one of the most famous indie bookshops in Seoul probably because the shop is easily accessible as it is located in Hongdae area and also for the fact that it holds many events to raise awareness for independent publishers.

The biggest event is a flea market called “Unlimited Edition” which is held once a year and goes on for two days. In this festival, independent books, journals, CDs and stationary products are displayed and can be bought on site. The market is open for interaction, though. Buyers can get to interview independent artists. Moreover, the bookshop itself is a huge attraction for many; you can enjoy ad-hoc events such as lectures, small staged performances, talk shows, documentary film sessions with cats.

全年最大的活動就是一年兩天的「Unlimited Edition」跳蚤市集,你可以在市集中看到獨立的書本、雜誌、CD或文具,看到喜歡後就可以到網站上購買。市集的目的是讓不同人士進行交流,買家可以藉此跟藝術家交談。再者,書店本身就已經有很多吸引人的地方,例如你可以參與很多特設的活動,如講座、小型舞台表演、脫口秀,還可以和店內的貓貓一起觀看不同的記錄片。
