Netflix’s Stranger Things must be an enormous hit in South Korea. First, we hear about some kind of friendly exchanges between a couple of the show’s stars and K-Pop group (or groups?), and now we learn that Netflix has brought the entire Hawkins, Indiana to Seoul, South Korea, by the way of an Escape Room pop-up called Stranger Story.
the pop-up will feature some of the most recognizable scenes from the hit sci-fi/horror TV show, including Byers’ home, The Palace arcade, and the place that started it all, the Hawkins National Laboratory. It is not purely Escape Room, though.
The setup also features an arcade area where you can play some 80s video games (as well as soon-to-be-available Stranger Things 3 video game by Bonus XP), a trick art museum, as well as other areas designed based on seasons one and two.
Stranger Story opens June 20 (South Korea time) and will welcome visitors until July 7. The location, if you are interested, is at 189, Donggyoro, Mapo-gu, Seoul, South Korea. Opening time appears to be rather short. Doors will be open from 2PM-10PM on weekdays, and 12PM-10PM weekends.
Now, those are really short windows and if Stranger Things is indeed so popular, I foresee it will be jam packed. Anywho, if you are in and around Seoul between June 20-July 7, perhaps you may be interested in popping up for a visit. You know, take some photos for your Stranger Things collection or something. Though I am not quite sure if the place is English language-friendly or not.
