  • I'd shop here rather than in any boutiques in Gangnam! The passion and the appetite for the bargain is high here! You can truly feel the Pulse of South Korean entrepreneurialism, passion and fashion.
  • A lots of cheap hand cream to buy and other souvenir too. Be daring and just walk and explore further. A lot of interesting stall & flea market nearby too.
  • It's a good shopping spot in Seoul. Decent shops and street food. Even found and Indian restaurant, just in case any Indian s searching for it
  • Oh my this is a shopping mecca. Didn't get to see all the shopping done we got there late around 11pm but it was still very a live at the time. If you love shopping then this will be heaven for you
  • Not quite my favorite place for shopping, but you can find good bargains if you're willing to go looking. The Shake Shack in this neighborhood is very busy.
