Making a DIY custom ring is a popular new trend among young stylish people in Seoul. It became a smash hit after Korean celebrities, Gain and Jo Kwon, made their own matching rings on a reality TV show called “We Got Married”. You can choose the size and style of the ring, and engrave initials or words. Everything’s up to you!

So, for this cold winter, spare one day with your beloved ones and design your own ring at a workshop in Hongdae (Hongik University Area). You’ll have the best time with friends, family and your significant one. For details and directions, click here.
