Myeongdong Food and Shopping Guide

Subway Line 4 Myeongdong station Exit 6; you are heading to a food and shopping heaven! From department stores and branded shops to streets and alleys, Myeongdong is a place to blow your Korean won in a short time. I have been there for more than 10 times. In Summer. In Winter. In Spring. I am a food hunter and shopaholic. MyeongDong has everything I need. If you are going there during Summer, participate in the Seoul Summer Sale event to win a trip to Korea. All you have to do is just answer a simple ambassador guessing quiz. They hold the a month-long contest in June or July every year. You got to keep an eye for it. Winners will be selected randomly. Try your luck!

Myeongdong Food Guide


Seasons change but Myeongdong is still the same “people mountain people sea”. There is always a large crowd of people no matter during the day or night. I like to go MyeongDong at night because there will be more stalls and street foods.

Twist Potato is a one of the very popular snacks in Korea! The street vendor dusted it with something like potato chips seasoning powder. Try the sausage one and tell me which is better.
