Hidden under Seoul is a labyrinth of underground shopping centers. These subterranean wonders begin to make a lot of sense as you swelter through a wet rainy summer; or start loosing the feeling in your fingers, nose and toes in the heart of winter.
Each of the underground shopping centers has a fascinating mix of goods for sale. They also tend to very much specialise in particular items, with groups of shops selling the same things gathered together. Among other things, the one closest to our apartment is full of shops selling vinyl records by the box load.
