Our first stop was the Lotte Department Store. We were waiting in line for the store to open with other Koreans. It was quite exciting. I don't know what people were looking for, but they sure were in a hurry. Afterwards we went to the main Myeongdong district and it was awesome shopping with so few people around. I highly recommend going in the morning to avoid the crowds. The moment the early afternoon came, it started to get crazy busy.

This poster was inside the grocery of the Lotte Department Store...I found it to be quite humorous:
Samsung, the makers of everything!
Here's a street in Myeongdong at 11:15am...
