    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    bought them as gifts to female friends. it cost about 5,000 won each if your buying 5 or more and 7,000 won if youre buying one. (no haggling means 7,000 won for 5 or more and 10,000 won for a single piece). Available in any market.

    Solar Key Chain Souvenirs

    by machomikemd Written Jun 24, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    key chains cost about 1,000 won for wooden ones and about 1,500-2,000 won for metal ones and about 5,000 won for solar powered ones! that is if you haggle (no haggling means about 50% more expensive!) and they are available everywhere but you best bet to buy the cheapest ones are on the markets like namdaemun and dongdaemun than it touristy areas like insadong!

    Korean T-Shirts as Giveaways!

    by machomikemd Written Jun 24, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the cheapest white t-shirts cost 3,500 won if you are buying by the bulk and 4,000 won if not (that is after you haggle since they would ask you 6,000 won ($ 5.70) as initial price and that would be higway robbery!!) Colored shirts cost 5,000 won after haggling and 8,000 won before haggling. Of course they are of lesser quality that is why they are giveaways, if you plan to buy shirts which are hand painted by the famous Insadong Artists, they go for 15,000 won ($ 14) and are heftier than the souvenir throw aways
