Where to find music (including LPs) in Busan?
I've been in Korea for over a decade (long enough to remember when Tower Records was here) but I'm fairly new to Busan. I'm an avid music collector and am always looking for stores with a decent collection of CDs as well as LPs, SACDs, DVD-As, etc. I Love Music in Nampo-dong has a decent selection of CDs, at least by today's iPod standards. Found an SACD or two hiden amongst the stock. The Hot Trax in Shinsegye has a small amount of vinyl (new, audiophile titles). A Synnara Records in Seomyeong has a nice-sized selection of LPs, mostly used but some new. Anything else here I should be looking at? I'm particularly interested in vinyl, new or old but I'd like to hear about any store that isn't limited to today's hits. Thanks!

Hey,

I've been using http://www.insound.com/ to get vinyls shipped over here. They charge a small base fee and only 2 dollars per record.  I have a contact there who will also change the invoice prices to avoid paying duties on the records.

the antique shop in the basement area of the suyeong subway station has a large selection of LPs.  also, nearly directly across the street from the gu office for geumjeong gu (just between the jangjengdong and guseodong subway stations) there is a record shop called LP Love or Vinyl Love, pretty sure the sign is yellow and blue-ish.  i used to walk past it almost everyday and have one friend that used to shop there.  those directions may not make much sense, so if you are interested, contact me backchannel and i will give more detailed directions.  the antique shops are a good place to look in general, at least i usually see some LPs as i walk by them.  happy vinyling to you

There's a thrift store inside Myeongnyeong Station, # 126, Line #1.

They have a stack of albums for sale.

Is Synnara Records in the basement of Judies?  Around that area or is there another place I've completely missed?  I've been dying to go music shopping even though I doubt I'll find anything here that fits my tastes.  Where's the I Love Music in Nampodong?  I think I just figured out how I'm going to spend a few days of my brief winter vacation.  Cheers!

A few stores offer used LPs in Nampodong and in the subway arcade between Nampodong and Jung-ang-dong.

Part of the fun is finding them for yourself.
