Bomulsum in Busan


A throwback to the 1970s and 1990s, Bomulsum in Busan is like an exhibition center filled with eye-catching items from the moment you enter. Advertising posters and other retro items fill the steep staircase. Inside, where popular songs from the 80s and 90s play nonstop, you'll find abacuses, old cassette players, tin lunch boxes and all sorts of other items. If you're middle-aged, these are the things you used as a child, and if you're young, these are the things your parents' generation used.

It's not just a pile of old stuff, but it's organized and categorized in a way that makes it easy for people to see and experience. A kitchen with old sweets, condiments, drinks and more. A music room with records, tapes, and old posters. A study room with textbooks, book bags, Boy Scout uniforms, and more. A liquor collection with vintage, exotic and unique liquors. It's a collection so alive that you can feel the nostalgia just by walking through each room.

Everything is there to touch and buy. You can even put on your old school uniform, try out the items and have your photo taken as if you were back in the day.

Bosu-dong Book Street


Even with the most time-efficient travel experience, you can still get tired trying to fast-forward your way through the sights. Bosu-dong Book Street is a great place to stop and take a breather.
You can find childhood memories in faded books you pick up by chance. The signs and stacked books show Busan's past years and give off an analog vibe. Each shop has so many books that they pile up from the floor and take up both sides of the narrow alley.
The steep staircase in the middle of the alley is a fun place to take a photo, with a book on each step, in a casual pose as if you don't care about the shot.
The desire for knowledge that blossomed amidst the hardships of life formed the bookstore street and made the people of Busan begin to learn despite the lack of resources. The culture of the Bosu-dong Book Street, created by the unique environment, coexists with books and is still alive today. Why don’t you buy a book that touches your heart from the many books in the alley.
