South Korea’s Best Markets


Question from a reader: technology and electronics in Korea?

EDIT - 24 August 2010 - Added directions to another shopping place, fixed a link, and corrected some information. See the comments for the full story.

Hi Chris,

A friend of mine showed me your blog a while and I gotta say I love it! Thanks for taking the time to catalog your days for the person interested in traveling to Korea. My question is about South Korea and electronics. First, how technologically inclined is Seoul and the surrounding cities?

I am planning my move there soon, and electronic devices are very vital to my life(aka, I'm a huge nerd, haha). I have a pretty pricey phone, a custom computer, and a standard iPod, all of which I exhaust daily. Will I have to shell out for a new phone, etc.? Or can I take my babies with me?


Creative Korean Advertising #23: Namdaemun Market

( Source: KOREA.NET )

Not an original concept for an advertisement by any means, but then considering Korea’s abysmal record at self-promotion then it deserves praise just for its grammatically correct English(!), let alone how aesthetically-pleasing it is.
