South Koreans are some of the biggest consumers of coffee in the world. There are more than 15,000 specialist establishments in South Korea. To stand out, coffee house owners are prepared to do whatever it takes.

They gave their establishment an original appearance which has attracted tourists and the regions inhabitants alike. Both amateur photographers, they have created an atypical and unique establishment, something which really sets them apart from their competitors.
This innovative concept comes in the café’s interior, which is entirely dedicated to photography. The manager shares his passion with his customers. He photographs clients and develops the photo in front of them, while asking them to write down their dream. The result is then published on the Facebook page and the South Korean Café’s blog.
One of these photos went viral on the net and sparked interview requests worldwide. Fan numbers increased from150 to 3,000 in a matter of days. The Dreamy Camera Café has become more than a café, it’s a major regional tourist attraction.
