It’s every VIP’s dream to visit the pension owned by G-Dragon’s father which located at Pocheon, a landlocked city in the far northeastern region of Gyeonggi province in South Korea.
The journey from Seoul to Pocheon takes about 1 hour by bus.
So how to get to Pocheon from Seoul:
Get to Dong Seoul Bus Terminal via the metro, is located at GangByeon Station, Line 2, Exit 4.
At Dong Seoul Bus Terminal, get a bus ticket at the counter to ildong (일동), it’s a bus to Pocheon, so you’ll have to get down when the driver announced ‘ildong’, or to be sure, just let the driver know where you’re heading when you get on board.
Upon arriving in ildong bus terminal, if you don’t have any phone to ring Dolce Vita, there’s a public phone just few meters away from the place you alight. You should be able to see the public phone on your left if you’re facing the building (not the main road).
Ring the pension & mention pick up at Lotteria, so what’s next is wait at Lotteria! And……if you’re lucky, JiYong Appa (GD’s Dad) will actually comes and pick you up! Wait for about 10 minutes, the transfer is Free of Charge.
And YES, Jiyong Appa did come and pick us up, so on the way to the pension, Jiyong appa stopped by a supermarket and did a grocery shopping with us for our BBQ dinner.
After grocery shopping, we hopped back to the car and continue the journey to the pension. On our way, since I sit at the front seat next to Jiyong Appa, we had a little chat, so I asked “Are you Jiyong Appa?” and he seems very happy that I can recognized him. So then Jiyong Appa asked me something about our rooms, as we are only 5 peoples (initially 6), so we booked 3 rooms & Jiyong Appa is suggesting something amazing for us!
Jiyong Appa: “Do you know G-Crayon Room?”
Me: “YES! I do!”
Jiyong Appa: “G-Crayon has 2 rooms, Jiyong’s room can sleep 3 and the other room can sleep 2, so all of you can fit in G-Crayon”
TRUST ME! At the moment I literally shout out “Jin-Ja?” (which means really in Korean)
Jiyong Appa: Laugh again…says “Jinja? Really, you all can stay at G-Crayon”
Then a sudden call back to reality again I continue with “It’s so expensive……….” Sigh~ (Indeed, It is expensive at about 800,000krw per night & allowed only 2 pax as stated in the website)
Then Jiyong Appa: “Noonoo…you still pay the same for the 3 rooms.”
I must be flushing & f*cking flying high that time and I don’t remember at all how I responded to Jiyong appa.
The G-Crayon Room
THIS IS F*CKING G-CRAYON ROOM! The containers on top shows the master bedroom & another bedroom.
The key to G-크레용 (G-Crayong) room.
So here, YES, I’m showing off the G-Crayon room that I get to stayed in! 😛
Let me welcome you for a little tour at G-Crayon’s Room.
The Classy Living Room
The Classy Living Room (which I don’t even want to calculate how much it cost to have such living room). We basically can’t keep our hands out of everything inside this little space. Probably wouldn’t get a second chance to do so.
There are total 2 rooms in G-Crayong, obviously the master room would be the one that GD stay and the other room is probably where Taeyang or his friend to stay during their short getaway.
What’s out there at Dolce Vita Pension?
There is really nothing much to see except a lake, which makes it a not so good place to go in winter but you would probably enjoy all the winter activities nearby the pension.
Of course, not forgetting JOLIE and GAHO.
Jolie is a bit fierce to get close to her and Gaho does looks really old.
I really wanted to take them for a walk, but it seems like it’s too cold for them to go for a walk and Jiyong appa told us that Gaho was sicked. T^T And the cat, is this Maru? I’m not too sure but he sits all the time outside of G-Crayong room’s door.
Dolce Vita Pension provides FREE breakfast.
Please do wake up early and grab your breakfast at the amazing free cafe, it finishes at 10am. So we wake up pretty late the next day & when we headed to the cafe, Kwon’s Auntie is actually in the mid of cleaning the cafe. She asked if we had our breakfast & we said no, she’s a bit shocked & explained to us about the foods & left the cafe.
What’s in the Cafe?
The piano that appears on Who You Music Video and a cute MCM tukki beside the piano.
I’m so sure that you wouldn’t miss this giant wall poster.
The best thing is to enjoy a quiet breakfast with all the photobooks you possibly wanted to buy!
You can enjoy your breakfast with little GD. I seriously couldn’t imagine someone who is not a fan of GD or knows nothing about him to visit this place, definitely freak out by all these standee & posters. 😂
There are little tiny things that caught my attentions in the cafe too!
It’s basically like a mini museum of BIGBANG.
Not to forget a selfie with Jiyong Appa!
TIP: Don’t be shy to take picture with Jiyong Appa as he really has no camera shy & he’s more than happy to take a picture with you.
GOODBYE Annyeong Dolce Vita Pension, G-Crayong Room.
Can you imagine how much efforts it takes to actually leave this bed? T^T
