Korean Trend: Mini blocks

The first thing I noticed when arriving back in Korea was people sitting in cafes playing with legos. Upon further inspection, I realized that they were actually building figurines with miniature blocks as a way to pass time. I didn’t understand the appeal at first, but I was hooked once I bought a kit and tried it for myself. I even bought my dad one for him to try out at home.

There are no verbal directions, just images of how each layer of the figurine should look. It took me around 2 hours to build one because I kept using the wrong blocks due to the small pictures. It can definitely get frustrating, but it’s a way to keep your mind sharp and keep yourself occupied if you’re just sitting around. I plan on starting a collection, but I have to finish my Iron Man first! For now, Squidward stands alone on my nightstand.
