    Myong Dong

    This quarter has two faces, each of which seems totally different from each other. First, it is a most
    important financial district of Korea, having headquarter buildings of the nation's representative national and commercial banks
    such as the Industrial Bank of Korea, the Korea Exchange Bank, and the Kookmin Bank, as well as The Bank of Korea, the bank
    of issue. Moreover, a total of over 70 bank branches of the various financial institutions, including banks, securities companies,
    and short-term financing companies and investment firms are located within the area. Secondly, Myong-dong is known as a most
    advanced fashion and entertainment center. U2 Zone, V-Exchange, Trend 20, ENVY and Hamburger University are among the
    large number of fashion malls, which are packing the area more dense every year. Those multi-functional shopping spots,
    equipped with update facilities for consumers, mainly for the younger generation, draw in thousands of fashion-minded people from
    across the city. With the slogan, 'From head to feet' they have come to push out more or less the traditional specialty stores in
    this area. Cafes and bars with live music and various kinds of restaurants, in many cases boasting of long tradition, are still
    prospering, while McDonald's, Burger King, and other fast food restaurants are also extending their spaces. So it is natural that
    about two million people flow in and out of this area a day. As the shopping population includes a considerable number of foreign
    tourists and residents, boards and instructions for shopping written in Japanese or Chinese are often seen on the show windows of
    the stores.

    Myung-Dong in the centre of the city is a pedestrain mall shopping district. You'll find all sorts of shops and eateries around there, both western, Japanese and of course Korean. Unfortunately they have heaps of Starsucks around there as well.
    It get quite crowded at shopping time and for some reason there aren't that many men there!
