Cosmetics and Seaweeds.

Former is a must-buy as it is damn cheap there. Personal recommendation is The Face Shop, korean counterpart is selling it damn cheap - i bought a whole carton of it during my trip last year

the Face shop may be cheaper in Korea itself but there are tons of other Korean cosmetic brands in Korea itself to choose from. go to popular shopping districts like myeongdong, or actually anywhere has beauty shops.

How about shoes? I bought Etnies shoes there for about $60 and when i compare it here,it cost $120! Another thing i like is their waffles selling @ their train stations.Something different than the waffles sold here @ confectionary shops.
