[Entertainment] Daegu Photo Studio, Daily Studio─Cheap & Fast Photo Taking for Special Day

Cheap & Fast Photo Taking for Special Day
If you live on the subway, there is a good chance you’ve been to the underground mall at Banwoldang Station. Perhaps you’ve noticed the many photo studios in the area of the mall as you exit the red line part of the station just before the fountain. There are always gaggles of teenagers hanging out, waiting to get their pictures taken.  So why not do as the Koreans do and get your picture taken professionally with your friends.

You can tell which photo studios are more foreign-friendly because they will have some pictures of foreigners posted outside as examples of their work. This article is written about Daily Studio. It is located just outside the red line subway exit at Banwoldang underground shopping mall. If you get off the red line subway, go up the first set of stairs and out the subway barriers. Walk towards the underground fountain, and you’ll get to a fork where you can take one of three ways—left, right, or straight towards the fountain. Take the right fork, and there will be three photo studios all in the same area. Daily Studio is the second one on the left-hand side, across from the hat shop.
