Idae/Ehwa Womens University
For freshies who don’t exactly have a clear idea on the shopping strategy at Seoul, here’s what you should know. The commercialised DongDaeMun (동대문) and Myeongdong (명동) is NOT the place for you to go if you are an economical shopper, just like me. You want cheap clothes, stay away from tourist spots!
The Ehwa Women University street is also a tourist spot, but its still not popularly known as a shopping haven yet – so alot of things there are always in the range of 5000won (RM 15/ $5). It is right next to Sinchon, or two stations next to HongDae. All are in Green line #2.
Colour Accent Effect : The Green Line
Colour Accent Effect : Blue seats.
I love the syncronization. Everybody’s so considerate of the people may be rushing.
Take this exit
Upon exiting, you’ll see Teenie Weenie. One of the better known locale brands. Maybe Korea’s cute edition of Polo?
Polka dotted one sleeve jumper
World Cup fever. This day was right after the day South Korea qualified for Top 16.
The lanes – Feels like ChinaTown. The only difference is that, its clean, less stuffy and clothes are all really washing machine turbulence proof wahaha.
Shoes. 89% of the youths (*woman) struts their heels!
Walking back to Sinchon from Idae** (short for Ehwa Womens University in Korean)
We usually call it “The M”. Nothing much in here, only a pretty cinema.
One of the many 5000Won shops.
Tourist buses. I’m sure this place will be more commercialised in a span of a few years so you’d appreciate coming here asap before it does.
Funny accessories. If you come with a boyfriend/girlfriend you will get a half price discount!
Floral dressings. Best for ladylike goers.
Bags going for 10000 Won (RM 30)
These were going for an easy 3000-4000 (RM 9-RM 12). All in good quality!
Row of 5000 Wons
Really liked this T but it was way over budget. About 15000 Won (Rm 45). I think ALL T’s should be RM 15!
Hot bars, sweet potato, dried cuttlefish etc. These mini stores are called PoJangMaCha (포장마차)
Korean puppies are all very trendy. Semua ada hair dye.
SALT – reminds me of the upcoming Angelina Jolie movie.
Flare skirt shorts going at 4500 Won! (Thats like, RM 13.50)
For a minute I thought the staff was a mannequin pfft.
Suddenly feel liek eating Mash potatoes pfft.
