CNBLUE Jong Hyun’s Sulbing Korean Dessert Cafe

Part of my one-day K-Pop tour is to visit celebrity-owned restaurants. Since CNBLUE is one of my favorite K-pop band, Hwang’s Eel Restaurant which is owned by Min Hyuk’s father and Jong Hyun’s Sulbing Korean Dessert Cafe are on top of my priority list. After I went to K-Star Road and Korean Entertainment agencies (Cube, JYP, FNC and SM) in Apgujeong and Cheongdamdong in Gangnam, I went to Jong Hyun’s Sulbing Korean Dessert Cafe to celebrate my successful K-Pop tour and to have my very first bingsu as well!

Bingsu is a Korean dessert that is quite similar to our very own halo-halo which comprises of shaved ice, milk and different varieties of sweet toppings ranging from chopped fruits, beans and syrup. Sulbing is a Korean dessert cafe which specializes with different kinds of bingsu but rather than using shaved ice, it uses frozen milk instead. Since it is springtime, I opted for berry cheese sulbingo at ₩7300. This is a bit pricey but it is so worth it!! The blueberries and raspberries are fresh, the cheesecake and yogurt ice cream are delicious, and the frozen milk yogurt melts perfectly with the rest of the toppings. It was cold outside since it was in early April when I went here but I still managed to enjoy each spoonful of my berry cheese bingsu without needing to mix the ingredients altogether as what you would normally do when you eat halo-halo.

Aside from the bingsu, their menu also includes coffee, smoothie, bread toast, cake, porridge and sherbet.

While eating my sulbingo, I was able to observe and take pictures of the restaurant. The restaurant is big and has a modern contemporary interior design. There are pots of plants from CNBLUE fans and there are various pictures of Jong Hyun. I also saw a picture of Kim Woo-bin which was taken when he visited the cafe (they were both in Korean Drama Gentleman’s Dignity). Jong Hyun also filmed an episode of We Got Married by MBC Entertainment here with his virtual wife Seung Yeon.

2)  As you turn the corner, you will see Sillim Department Store and a street sign of Sillim-ro 65 gil (신림로 65길). The department store was still under construction when I went here in April so it’s probably open by now.

Look out for Sillim Department Store (which was still under construction when I went here in April).
