I love Shinsegae (supposedly the world’s biggest mall). If anyone ever wants to go there, I am game, because I still have not explored every crevice. And, oh yes, I have tried —and will continue to try!

I have only watched movies in Korea at the top floor of Shinsegae. I must say that it is amazing! The only tip I can tell is not to watch any animated or kids’ movies, because they’re usually dubbed in Korean. Unless you like that sort of thing.

Sinsegae claims to be the biggest department store in the world, not the biggest mall.  There is a difference, I guess, though these days it is getting blurred.  Sinsegae is like a mall in that you can walk around and there are many different stores and restaurants...  hmmmm...  I believe the biggest mall in the world is somewhere in Saskatchewan.

lol saskatchewan. good one chris. edmonton used to have the biggest then mini/st paul took the claim. now i believe dubai has the largest mall.

as for shinsege, it both a mall and department store, half and half. how it is classified as a departmnet store is strange? still has nothing that fits normal sized people though...lol

"Department store" isn't really part of my regular vernacular, but technically, yes, Guinness has recognized Shinsegae at the "world's largest store." Thanks for the friendly reminder.

What is your point? Check the internet. Guinness now recognizes Shinsegae as the world's largest STORE. It has passed Macy's in 2009.

I did check the internet and I cant find anything.. The only thing I did find from the Guinness site was that Shinsengae passed Macy's as the largest department store in the world in 2009. Could you please send me the link you found on the internet about it being the largest store? Just so I can correct myself instead of putting out false information.

it is the worlds largest department store. at least this is what guiness says. it is larger than macys by quite a bit and actually says macys used to be the largest so i guess it is considered a department store as well.

Thank you Mr. Paul for confirming what I've already stated.
