  • Although it is a market, there are many shops that can be purchased from one piece. This time I went to the back floor of the basement recommended by my friend and went shopping. I thought that if I had time and physical strength, I would be worried about other floors. I heard that it was only a Sunday on Saturday, so I went on Saturday, but it was a holiday on that day.

  • Shopping is not something to spend time on in Korea. Especially if you're flying in for the weekend (like us). Shops are large, inside are more like markets, prices are high, there are quite cheap things, but it is more common in subway crossings. I don't think anyone's buying like that right now. So-called outlets, where they sell at a discount some unknown (for me) brands, are so expensive that the discount does not change anything. If you want to buy something, well suddenly you need a dress or a T-shirt to change, it is better to go to the network type of zara, because that everything is clearer.
