As soon as you enter the building, you’re welcomed into a big open space that’s clean, white and clear. From the very beginning you feel that signature SM-aura.

How can you call it the SUM Cafe (or SM Cafe) without all the decorative goods of our favorite SM artists? From the EXO heartthrobs to SM’s queen, BoA, the cafe holds all of the latest posters, photos and celebratory decorations of the SM artists.

The cafe also holds some of the most unique items that can’t be found anywhere else. There are potteries painted with unique designs of SM artists, and displays of the actual items used during SM music videos shoots.

We couldn’t leave without trying out their actual cafe! We ordered us a cold glass of Americano and an amazing EXO cupcake. You can choose your favorite artists’ cupcake and your favorite member to decorate with. We chose EXO and our bias, ChanYeol for today!

Now that we got our stomachs satisfied, we took a stroll downstairs to the SUM Market. It’s basically a grocery store that’s been bedazzled with SM artists. Here you can find any kind of food that’s been especially made to fit the characteristics of SM groups. Have you tried EXO almonds and SNSD beer?

Just outside of the market, you can find a lobby full of small to big cut-outs of SM star characters. Have a photoshoot or sit by the bench while you read the latest SM magazine or watch the latest SM music video! It’s all there.

Hello. I was wondering if anyone is allowed to enter this building. I am going on a trip to Korea soon and I really want to visit this building. Is it open to anyone (any age)? Or is it a building for only the workers for SM.
