The event was held in Korea for the first time at KINTEX in Seoul, and Siwon participated in the event to try his hand at creating latte art along with the world’s top baristas.
The event was held for two days from November 2nd to 3rd and invited nearly 50 world class baristas from all over the world. The baristas showed off their talent, and the winner’s latte art will be used on the package lid for 2013 Cafe Latte products. 1% of the proceeds from this product will go to the Make-A-Wish Korea foundation supporting children.
Siwon turned into a barista for one day, and made his own latte art with last year’s winner, Chris Loukakis. Loukakis said, “I know that Siwon is part of the biggest idol group in Korea and the model for Cafe Latte, the sponsors of this event. I was surprised because of his good looks and also his latte art skills that were quite remarkable for a beginner.“
