Nowadays, Koreans take a lot of profile pictures just to capture their current status. Since Korean photographers are famous for turning their customers into beautiful people, tourists visiting Korea list taking a photo shoot as an essential itinerary plan. They make many reservations for ID photos and passport photos.

You can't go to any studio for a life-long picture, right? So today I am going to introduce you a photo studio that possesses the best photo-taking skills and photo airbrushing skills, Meomulda Studio. "Meomulda" is a Korean verb which means 'to stay at somewhere'. I think they named it "Meomulda Studio" to mean that they will capture the beautiful moment of the customer and make it last for a long time. Great name!   

The location is on the Sinsa-dong Garosugil, and it only takes 2 minutes by foot from Sinsa Station.

Sinsadong Garosugil Photo Studio : Meomulda Studio | Roadmap Directions

Walk up the stairs to the 3rd floor and you will see the phrase "the present and the beauty stay". This wall must also be a photo zone, right?

Next to that, there are photos of the two co-founders of Meomulda Studio hung on the window. Both of them are so handsome!   

The two of them run the photo studio together, providing the photography service and photoshop service entirely by themselves.

When you enter the studio, you will see a shooting area with lighting and clean backgrounds.

Overall, it is not big compared to other studios but due to it, the place does feel very cozy.  

A witty phrase that says"Don't worry! There is Photoshop!"

There is a mirror and a dresser in the back of the shooting area where you can fix your make up before photoshoot.

Curling irons, hair dryers, combs, other hair tools, and basic cosmetics are free to use.

After I finished fixing my makeup, I went immediately into photoshoot. As soon the photographer started taking pictures, I could feel that he was a professional.
I had a choice of taking ID photo, passport photo, and half-size (4*6cm) photo. I decided to take ID photo because I didn’t like my current one.

Do you see my rigid face? At first I felt so awkward, but soon enough, the photographer made me so comfortable that I could quickly become very natural. If my posture or face angle wasn't correct, he would kindly give me instructions on how to correct my pose. He took about 5 ~ 10 pictures, and the photoshoot ended in a flash.

When the shooting was finished, the photographer and I chose the picture together. Since the photographer gave me his advice on which photo was the best, I was able to select the photograph immediately without having an unending dilemma.   

The photographer started a retouch of the photo that I chose. He used the Adobe Photoshop program. I sat right next to him and watched the airbrushing process all the way from start to finish.

In case you want to print out more versions of yourself, you should know that you can choose more than 1 picture at an additional charge.

The photographer was so kind that he reflected on every small detail that I wanted. He increased the size of the eyes and erased my unorganized hair.
The photographer airbrushed the photo until I was 100% satisfied with it. I was impressed because his hands were so fast, and I couldn’t stop exclaiming OMG! He is so competent! The photoshop process took about 10 minutes.    

After the airbrushing process, the photographer immediately printed out five photos of the edited version. He also cut the photos for the appropriate size.
Meomulda Studio has a big advantage that you can receive your printed out photos RIGHT ON THE SPOT!   

Left: before correction, right: after correction

I was so satisfied with the pictures. It came out better than I originally expected! It wasn't artificial at all but it was a natural, beautiful version of me!   

The photographer also sent me the original picture files by email. If you want to modify the picture yourself, you can use the original file.
