As you might know I love cafes and I’m an BTS army – so what combination could be better than a cafe that has something to do with BTS? During my trip to Busan, I’ve visited a cafe which is actually owned by the father of one of the BTS members. Keep reading if you want to find out more about it!
The cafe I’m talking about is Cafe Magnate. At first it looks like a normal cafe, but what makes it special is that it’s actually owned by Jimin’s dad.
The coffee shop is very big and aesthetically decorated. There are a few hints that the cafe is related to BTS, but not too heavily or overloaded. For example only BTS is playing as background music, there are hats displayed as decorations that used to belong to Jimin and a banner praises the owner’s son.
I was actually very lucky and met Jimins dad in person. Just after paying for my croissant and coffee I realized that the employee was kind of old – and by “old” I mean definitely above the average age of a hip barista working in a korean cafe. After doing some research on the internet, I found out that I just gave my imaginary father in-law my credit card – I was shook, haha! I was not expecting for him to work there at all, since cafe owners don’t actually have to help out in their store; usually they’ve got enough employees for that. Jimin’s dad seemed very humble – a Rolex on his wrist was the only luxury item that I could spot on him and let me assume that this employee is not a “regular” barista in the first place (besides the age of over 50, but my brain works slow lol).
All in all, it’s a nice cafe to relax at. Even if you are not a BTS fan, you can enjoy your coffee with friends or alone. I’d highly recommend visiting it if you’re in Busan!
