Why is it so cold in Korea during the winter time? It's so cold that my skin and every joint in my body hurts. Luckily, there are still indoor shopping when it's freezing outside, so I can stay where it's warm. We came to Gangnam Station to shop. The shopping area is connected to the subway station. Cho's friend said there are lot of cheap clothing shops here. I also saw the same thing online. So, we came here to check them out! Just as people said, there are quite a lot of clothing shops here. Mainly women's clothing. I can't remember seeing any shops for guys though. Either there were very few or I just wasn't paying much attention to guys stuff. Feel sorry for guys going on shopping trips with their girlfriend to Korea. Seem like there aren't much for the guys compared to the girls.
There are a lot of discount stores here underground. I guess the prices are similar to Hongdae even thought this is in the Gangnam area.
This place reminds me a lot of the underground shopping area in Taipei.
There's a Paris Baguette here. We love the bread and pastries there. Totally ate too much here for a "snack".
I saw that there is a Gundam Base here. We wanted to go inside but it was closed that day. It was January 1st that day. Don't know if that's the read it was closed.
Anyways, although there are many cheaply priced clothing here, I don't think it's worth coming unless you are already in the area. The pricing is similar to Hongdae, but the style is so plain and it just doesn't give me the urge to buy at all. I didn't buy anything here after spending about 1.5hr shopping in this underground place. Well, I also think it has something to do with the season of the year. They were selling mainly thick winter clothing. They were totally clothes that won't be wearable in Hong Kong.
