Korea Seoul Shopping

9 April 2019

Wet mall

Escaping the rain at the Coex mall and Hyundai department store

Now it is raining, really raining. I got really wet, and went to the mall.
On the way there people looked at me like I was a special kind of idiot, walking along getting wet without an umbrella without even screaming a little bit.
Once I got to the mall, the security guy opening the door looked uncertain as to if he should even let me in. Seriously, I was only mildly saturated, no water running off me.

I had been to this mall before, maybe both times I have been to Korea previously, I think possibly when it was raining then also. I think its now contains a lot more shops and entertainment than on previous visits, and as you will see, theres a really really fancy Hyundai department store there now, as well as lots of hotels, a casino, aquarium, cinema, you get the idea.

When I went to walk home again, after an hour or so underground it was raining even harder, too hard even for this hardened rain fan to brave in the cold. So I took the subway most of the way leaving only a short dash to the hotel door. The hotel staff were not thrilled when I entered their lobby slightly drowned.

As mentioned, I stumbled into the Hyundai department store. Yes, the same as the car company, in Korea they are everything, not just cars. This was probably the flashiest department store I have ever been in, fancier than anything I can think of in Japan, possibly because it is newer.

After exiting Hyundai world, I found a fancy food court area back in the mall. If its still raining tomorrow, I can come back here, hang out in the food court, go to the library, swim in the aquarium, drive a Hyundai around a supermarket.
