Café in South Korea Looks Like a Real-Live Cartoon

It might look like an optical illusion.

But this is a real life cafe in South Korea cleverly designed to give customers the distinct impression that they're inside a cartoon.

Cafe Yeonnam-dong in Seoul opened last year and everything inside from the decor to the furniture and crockery have a striped black-and-white cartoonish aesthetic.

The small, yet cosy, 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. Owner Eunjin Lee told MailOnline Travel: 'We created the cafe because there was nothing like it in Korea, or even the world. We tried to make a very unique concept. That is why we chose this style.' The cafe is especially popular with young people eager to give their Instagram feeds a cartoon upgrade.
