Hopefully you haven't already gone to Seoul!

I just moved back from Seoul a couple of months back. They have an AMAZING craft supply building that you have to visit if you get a chance. There are a couple of floors of fabric and all sold at great prices.

The place is called "Dongdaemun Shopping Town". I think the nearest subway stop is "Dongdaemun" (but you might want to double check that by going online or asking someone at your hotel when you arrive. I always got "Dongdaemun" and "Dongdaemun Station" stops confused. Either one will take you to the store, but one is further away)

If you don't speak Korean, I'd also bring along a pen and paper as some/many of the sellers don't speak English. My Korean is horrible but here are a couple of phrases that might be useful...

"One yard please" = han ma chuseyo (hawn mah chew-say-o)
"How much is it?" = no idea how it's written (ul mah eh-o?) Then I hand them my pad of paper and pen so that they can write the price down.

Have fun shopping!

hey! I had already left when you posted but I did went to Dongdaemun! I was just walking around looking for a place to lunch when I came across. I'm japanese so I managed to communicate a little.
Thank you so much for your reply!
