Our first destination was the Hope Institute!

We looked around the building and could see the value that Hope Institute share.

There were some posters on the wall, arranged like a whale!

It was an idea by the people working as interns. Along the hallways, we could see some special namecards

with the endangered animals on.ย All the staffs in the Hope Institute were paired up with the endangered animals,ย which was very impressive!

So-geum gil, was our second place to visit, which is located in Yeomlee-dong, Mapo-gu.

We walked around the road while discovering the changes of the village that used to have high crime rate.

The local people decorated the road with yellow color and put up security service center at several places by themselves.

Salt-man the mascot of So-geum (which means โ€˜saltโ€™ in Korean) gil attracts visitors with its delightful story.

Since we finished our schedule ahead of time, we could look around Hongdae a little bit.

The students were already aware of Hongik University for it college of art.

They spent some time taking pictures of the main gate of the university.

HK students were keep asking about the culture ofย Korean young people

that Hongdae was so crowded despite the freezing weather.

to learn Korean know-how thatย promotes contents industry.

and several workshops in the center.

We hope our HK friends would keep this passionate enrgy around Haja center for a long time!

We had a nice chat together with delicious cookies and drinks.

Hongkong friends were especially interested in supporting non-profit art organizations

and mutual exchange with foreign artists.ย The meeting was in a very friendly atmosphere,

and also the president of KAMS suggested the students to work with KAMS after they graduate.

Our second dinner was at the restaurant called Oyori that PlayPlanet introduced.

Oyori is run by โ€˜Organization Yoriโ€™ which is a social enterprise, and it is known as the first multi-cultural restraunt in Korea.

The reason why Oyori is called as a multi-cultural resrauant is their menu from different countries,

but actually its because of the immigrant women working in the restaurant.

Playplanet could enjoy the dinner time that Hongkong friends were fully satisfied with the restaurant.

Playplanet is also a social enterprise realizes non-profit value through travel.

We visited Seoul Social Economy Center which helps social enterprises such as Playplanet.

We looked around the building designed like a small city, while talking about social economy, social enterprise,

and the supporting system for social enterprises.

In this modern society that only stands for persuinjg its own profits,

we hope HK friends remember the ethical value of social enterprises,

and effort by the people working for the realization of social value.

The name โ€˜Neul-jangโ€™ literally means the market that opens everyday.

It was the citizenโ€™s idea to open a market on the land that Kyung-eui railroad used to located.

Now the railroad turned into the underground metro, so the abandoned site is used as a market for people

who want to realize the social economy through sharing their products, talents, and ideas.

HK students showed great attention to these valuntary participations of citizens, and also the products on the market.

Airbnb’s Seoul meetup party with Joe Gebbia


playplanet went to Airbnb’s Seoul meetup party !

We got an invitation from Airbnb saying there will be the evening party with Joe Gebbia, the co-founder of airbnb as they salute their hosts, travelers and the vibrant Sharing Economy community in Seoul.ย 


The meetup party was at ‘cafe aA’ which is in Hongdae, one of the Korea’s popular places for artists and university students where full of lively atmosphere is.

There were so many people lining up even before the party started.

IMG_1740At the party, Korean bartender was serving Makgeolli, Korean rice wine, one of my favorite liquor which tastes very.. um… yummy !

(I don’t know else way to describe it, so forgive me ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย More about Makgeolli click!)


As you can see in these pictures, the party was almost packed with people.


Regardless of sex and age, people whoever interested in travel, airbnb and Sharing Economy gathered and exchanged their thoughts and had opportunities to discover new relationships.


This little booth is for hand drip coffee. Guess these baristas must have been crazily busy grinding beans and dripping coffee to meet pending orders !



Personally, I think the main contributor to make this party successful was the talented DJ who played vibrant music through out the whole party which is tightly tuned into the atmosphere and it really heated up the air.

For the record, Hongdae is well known hot place for musicians and there are many kinds of clubs and indie music bands performing their art.


About halfway through the party, Joe Gebbia, the co-founder of Airbnb showed up!

playplanet read from the newspapers that airbnb is planning to launch its business at Seoul as it targets East Asia.
(For the related article, click)


playplanet also met Joe Gebbia and explained our business model which is in the ecosystem of the Sharing Economy that Airbnb emphasizes.
(There is another posting explaining Sharing Economy. click(Korean), click(English) )


In the middle of the party, Joe Gebbia and airbnb staffs had time to introduce themselves and Joe told the story about how they started Airbnb and all the rise and fall he experienced as the business grows.

He also underlined the importance of Sharing Economy which focuses on sharing rather than producing something brand new. For example, Airbnb facilitates people to share their home and exchange their experiences that they already have to the travelers not to build new houses or create another something new. In this Sharing Economy all they have to focus is to develop more what they already have and like to share better with others.
