Myung-dong street is one of the most exclusive streets in Seoul. It has quite a lot of nicknames, of which 'Mecca of Fashion', 'Young People's Street,' and 'Golden Place' are the most familiar. More than two million people pass by the expensive boutique shops here every day. Some of the best fashion designers sell their clothes here, such as Prada, Mook and Ssamzie. Each spring and autumn, festivals, fashion shows, concerts, and many other various events are held in the street.
Myeong-dong is a place everyone should visit at least once while visiting S.Korea. On my visit, we ended up going to myeong-dong at least once a week if not more. It's full with people from locals to tourist. Lots of shopping, from clothing to art supplies. Great place to buy idol merchandise as well for fans of kpop. Very friendly salesman and woman. Great place to people watch and just observe the life style. We spend 12+hours just hanging out and watching the crowd. Lots of fun and totally worth for both young and old people. Oh and for kpop fans. There's lots to be impressive with if you're looking forward to seeing idol goods. There's also a big BSX (Big Bang advertised) store and a big SM entertainment store as well, i am not fans of either so i didnt really give it much thought but my friend was and she was very happy to be there. So totally check the place out.
As a teenager, I have to say this is one of the most amazing place I have ever visited. Especially when it's dark and the neon lights are lit up. This place is filled with teenagers, especially on dates or outings with friends. Although I figured out if you are a bit too close to the owners of the small vendors or stalls, they might pester you into buying something unless you firmly tell them "No"
I loved this place but my parents (middle-aged-ish) found Myeong-Dong less exciting than me. Plus they were more concerned in not losing me amongst the crowd. Also, Myeong-Dong is not only popular among the Korean teens but there are also a lot of Japanese people who come here on holiday too.
One bad thing about this I might have to add is that because there are SO MANY people, if you lose something or if it gets stolen, I highly doubt you will ever see you missing item again.
But other than that, this place is truly AMAZING.
its nice to see a young koreans hanging around myung-dong, of course lots of shop. but i thought i will find something different from other countries i visited. like something that will remind me that im in korea.
It's a nice place for shopping, lot's of shops, usually with clothes. International brands are also present, but because of this the atmosphere is not very "korean". And many things you can find in the same shops but in other countries...
WE LOVE THIS PLACE.
i dont know why people
WOULDN'T like this place.
a safer version of new york city
the subways are safer, cleaner,
the people are so nice .
its like.. so much fun.
i dont understand people
who can live in america
after going to seoul, korea
because in seoul, korea,
the place never sleeps !
i love the subways, buses, taxis
so CHEAP and EASY !
i'm not much of a shopper, so can't give much of a review on the shopping experience here. rather than the shops themselves, it's a nice place to buy cheap hats, scarves, gloves, socks, etc at the vendors. also lots of little fingerfoods. there used to be quite a lot of nice korean restaurants and bars there, but since they were increasingly disappearing over the period of time i lived there, i'm not so sure if they're still there anymore.
you should really visit here :)
i feel so jealous. for the people
who live in seoul and the teenagers
there who can go there everyday
using the subways they have.
omg. i wish the subways of korea
were here. and myungdong.
its the best place you can eva beee
As a female who loves shopping, this place is amazing. There seem to be a limitless number of shops, everytime i went back there was somewhere that i hadnt found before. As well as the wide variety of clothes at a range of prices, there are so many food stalls that sell delicious snacks, i recommend the(호떡)ho-dduk a delcious sweet pancake/pastry snack, the 30cm tall ice creams or the spicydduk bokki (떡뽁이) the retaurants dont look like much from the streets but they are decieving and have good food and good atmosphere. my advice is that you wear comfortable shoes because there is much to see.
