Where could one purchase a "self-defense" spray or device?

Recent events in Suwon and here in Busan have seen some of my female friends become a bit nervous about walking alone at night.

I was asked if I knew where one could purchase a can of pepper spray or mace or some other, effective self-defense device here in Korea.

I heard someone mention that you could purchase spray on Gmarket, but are there other options?

Yes, I realize that issues may arise concerning the legality of such a device, and yes I do know that this is Korea we are talking about (I've never felt safer), but considering that a girl's body was found right in our neighborhood here in the Jung-dong/Jwa-dong area (near Jangsan mountain)...I think it's good for women to have it as a precautionary measure.

Anyone have any info?  It would be greatly appreciated!

afraid i'm not able to say where one could find in busan, or korea for that matter, but these are powerful. i've bought one here in malaysia, for the safety of my lady, its smaller than this. it is more of car key chain than anything else. but it is shriekingly loud. an old flame of mine had a model like this, it has a clip for belts, and a long cord (in the event of purse snatching) that will go off when the cord is pulled. fantastic devices. i suggest, as i'm not in korea any longer, that campinggear shops in namdaemun, tongdaemun in seoul or nampo,seomyeon in busan may carry such things.

hope the info is helpful

Try E Bay for some pure capsaicin spray aka pepper spray - that'll be cheaper and work effectively.Could easily make it yourself and put into a little spray thingy.

Mind you, you'd probably get sued by the victim's victim, if you understand what I mean.

Korea  is basicly a safe country . But when you get men full of alcohol its just like all other countries  men become dogs     So its just like whatever country you come from .Better go with a friend  and always its better to be safe then sorry . Dont do anything in korea that you would not  do in your country and you will be safe /
