If you’re planning to visit Busan, don’t forget to add the ‘Ryan Holiday in Busan’ Kakao Friends Exhibition to your list.
Have you been searching for a fantastic destination after a day at the beach where you can snap many adorable Instagram photos? Then I highly recommend Ryan Holiday in Busan. It’s a must-see tourist attraction if you’re currently in Busan, Korea; it’s only a few minutes walk from Haeundae beach. The exhibition is free, but a few special events require tickets.
If you live in Korea or use KakaoTalk, you must know the character Ryan. Ryan Holiday in Busan has the cutest characters and the perfect place to buy some Ryan merch while enjoying some delicious doughnuts and drinks.
What To Expect:
From Dongdung Island, you can see Ryan’s yacht! Before entering the secret palace, this is the lawn area. It is an ideal location for photography both day and night. I was genuinely impressed by the aesthetic quality and level of detail! I almost got lost since my friends entered the place first, and I was busy taking photos lol.

How To Go To Ryan Holiday In Busan: Kakao Friends Exhibition
You can take the subway to get to the Rryan Holiday Kakao Friends Exhibition in Busan. The closest station is Haeundae Beach, a short walk from the exhibition. Suppose you’re coming from Haeundae Beach; head north along the sidewalk until you reach the main road. At this point, turn right and follow the road until you see the exhibition entrance on your right-hand side.
The next closest station is Gwangan Station (also known as Gwangan Grand Station). This station is located directly across from the exhibition entrance on its northern side. If you’re coming from Gwangan Station, head south along the sidewalk until it meets up with a smaller road that runs parallel. Turn left at this point and follow this smaller road for about 100 meters before turning right onto one of two bridges that cross over it; these bridges will lead straight into the exhibition’s parking lot!
