Kyobo Securities Building [교보증권빌딩], completed in 1983, is a large 20 floors-high (and 3 floors below ground) office building located in Seoul’s neighborhood Yeouido [Yeouido-dong/여의도동] in the Yeongdeungpo District [Yeongdeungpo-gu/영등포구]; right next to S-Trenue Tower [에스트레뉴 타워].
When completed, the building first served as SK Group’s Yeouido office building and later a security company affiliated to Kyobo Life Insurance moved in here; most probably when SK Group moved into their recent headquarters in 2017.
Coffee Bean — Yeouido Kyobo Securities Branch [커피빈 여의도교보증권점] is located on the second floor of this building. It is a branch of North American coffee chain ‘The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’ —often shorted to ‘Coffee Bean’ or ‘The Coffee Bean’—, which was founded in 1963. In 2001, their first store opened in South Korea and in September 2013, a significant equity position in Coffee Bean was acquired by North American Advent International, in partnership with South Korean Mirae Asset Private Equity and Taiwanese CDIB Capital.
