The coffee scene in South Korea is huge, which we all know as DramaFever viewers. South Korea is home to the third largest number of Starbucks after the U.S. and Japan. The first location was opened in Ewha Women's University on July 27th 1999. Of the numerous Starbucks in Korea, there is only one spelled out in Korean, unlike most countries in the world.
Starbucks Korea recently launched an organic green latte made from green tea flown in from Jeju Island, so they've added delicious-looking green tea-based beverages to the menu. Here are some picks of decadent and delicious beverages and treats you can have ONLY if you visit Starbucks Korea:
