Myeongdong is one of my favorite places in Seoul. For me, a trip to Seoul wouldn’t be complete without dropping by Myeongdong. I love the energy of this place.
We actually went across the street to check out the Lotte Department Store and it just so happened that there was an SM Town pop-up store on the first level.
The stairs were actually a working piano. When you step on it, it would light up and play a sound. This was pretty cool.
They had various items from all artists. Since I became a recent EXO fan, I bought an EXO beanie. Sehun is my favorite.
We made our way on the rooftop and they had a really nice space to hang out on either side of the walkway. Look at that adorable kid!
There were actually 3 different Lotte malls which were connected: Lotte Department Store, Lotte Young Plaza and Avenue L.
The Lotte Young Plaza had a lot of pretty graffitis.
They even had a sweet potato store. I should have bought some. I bet it was nice especially in winter.
I took this picture of Myeongdong street from the top floor.
Even the restrooms were quirky.
We went to Avenue L which had a lot of pretty merchandise.
We also checked out the cinema and what was showing..
Finally, we went to the basement level of the Lotte Department store to check out the food section. :)
We bought some bread.
After that, we went back on the streets of Myeongdong.
You should definitely try the street food. This ajumma was selling dukbokki and other yummy goodness.
This ajusshi was selling various dried squid.
As always, you can see the Namsan tower from Myeongdong. :)
