Standing in line at Omokgyo Station, Line 5:
The handles on the subway are pretty nasty if you think about it, but sometimes you run into a psycho subway conductor that either accelerates or slams on the brakes way too hard. So you have to hold on for dear life--or, you can use the people around you as a human body cushion (I've tried it--it works like a charm!):
After reaching Gangnam Station you'll see a lot of shoe stores--all selling high heels. I have never seen so many women wearing heels seven days a week, 365 days a year. Doesn't it hurt to wear heels all the time?! Ladies, fill me in (heels hurt Devante's feet)!
Shoe sizes in Korea are measured in millmeters, not inches. So learn what size your feet are. One inch is approximately 2.54 centimeters. One centimeter equals 10 millimeters. You do the math!
Some shots from random stores...by the way, fluorescent colors are making a come back in Korea, baby (some would say it never went away, but those people are weird)!
Wow, who would have thought Donna Karan would open up shop inside Gangnam Station? Awesome!
The summer dress is super popular. The prices on some of these dresses were over 100,000w ($100USD) which didn't seem right considering the material was paper thin and cheap to the touch:
Random people shopping, or should I say flocking to the racks:
You don't want to be shopping down here for long, because there is no air conditioning. That means you'll be in a full body sweat in about 5-10 minutes, after getting shoved around by random people because it's one of the busiest stations in Seoul. This was the scene at the top of the stairs (on a Saturday afternoon)--even more people!
Here's the Gangnam Station exit map for your reference. See exit number 6? Take that exit if you're craving some of the best Mexican food in Seoul!
