Sights from the 2017 Kidult & Hobby Expo in Seoul



Who said comic books and toys are just for children? The 2017 Kidult & Hobby Expo is being held from Jan 19th to 22nd in Seoul, South Korea for grown-ups who want to buy comic book related goods and toys. In the expo we were able to find cute and tiny stationery, art toys, plastic models, paper models, and many more fascinating items. Musical instruments, drones, and handcrafts were also there to captivate customers, and finally, concept art books for famous video games were waiting for gamers to collect them all.

Aside from the above sales, paper craft and paper model festivals and plastic model festivals were held as sub-events. At the events, audiences were able to see their favorite models and vote for the best model. Now, let us visit the expo and take a look at the fascinating items through our photos.
