Good morning, everyone!
00:16
Today I have a special video featuring Q2HAN.
00:20
Well, they’re not here but we both decided to collab
00:24
on the topic of underground shopping here in Korea.
00:27
So, I’ve been to many underground shopping centers
00:30
in Gangnam, Express Bus Terminal,
00:33
Jongno as well as Yeongdeungpo.
00:35
And there are much more than that
00:37
but those are the top four that I can think of
00:41
that are quite big compared to the other ones.
00:44
Underground shopping is very popular
00:46
because you can buy a lot of clothes for a very cheap price.
00:51
I often go during the winter
00:54
to pick up a cardigan for 15,000 won
00:57
which is less than 15 dollars
00:59
and skirts, jeans, you can buy so much
01:02
for a very discounted price.
01:05
Because if you go to places like Myeongdong
01:08
a lot of those pop-ups
01:11
they buy from these underground shopping centers.
01:14
So, they are reselling it for like a thousand, two thousand won more.
01:18
But, yeah, that’s why if you have the time and patience
01:22
definitely check out the underground shopping here.
01:24
I think the Express Bus Terminal is the cheapest
01:27
but personally my favorite is Gangnam
01:29
only because it’s much smaller
01:32
and there are lots of trendy pieces that you can find
01:36
like all in one place.
01:37
Express Bus Terminal, there are so many different ones,
01:39
so you do kinda have to look around.
01:42
However, if you are okay with that
01:44
and if you want an adventure
01:46
definitely recommend Express Bus Terminal.
01:49
So initially Q2HAN asked if we could do a 30,000 won outfit challenge
01:54
and to be honest I didn’t have the time
01:57
to go to the other underground shopping centers for this video
02:00
because of the travels.
02:02
So, I decided to share some tips. I have five.
02:06
And the haul at the end of this video.
02:08
Number one, have cash.
02:10
These stores prefer cash over card
02:12
because it’s just easier that way.
02:15
And you can possibly get a discount if you have cash.
02:19
And also, you don’t have to pay an extra fee if you have a card.
02:23
So, don’t forget to carry cash
02:25
when you’re going underground shopping.
02:27
Number two is make two rounds.
02:29
Whenever you walk into the Express Bus Terminal
02:31
or any underground shopping centers actually,
02:34
you’ll notice that a lot of the stores carry the same shirts,
02:38
blouses, skirts, shoes and whatnot.
02:41
There is a possibility where when you buy it
02:44
and after like ten steps
02:46
you’ll see that the thing you just bought
02:49
is actually a thousand or two thousand won cheaper.
02:52
So I recommend that you make two rounds.
02:53
First round, walk around and look for pieces that you are interested in
02:58
and then the second one, go back to the shops that had discounted prices
03:02
and clothes that you liked.
03:05
I wanna say the deeper you go into the underground shopping centers,
03:09
you’ll notice that the clothes get cheaper.
03:11
So, right when you walk in you’ll see that, “Oh, my gosh! Everything is so pretty”
03:14
and you wanna get all the shopping over with
03:16
but then trust me
03:18
like five minutes in you’ll notice that they carry the same stuff,
03:22
but it’s cheaper.
03:23
Number three is commit to a shop.
03:26
So if you walk into one specific shop
03:28
and pick like three to five things,
03:31
there’s a higher chance that the owner will give you a discount,
03:35
and if you use a card they won’t charge you
03:38
because you just bought three to five things from them.
03:41
So, commit to a shop.
03:43
I usually commit to three to four shops
03:46
and it would usually for accessories, clothes, clothes and shoes.
03:50
Number four is to go on a weekday.
03:53
Weekends are packed,
03:55
and it’s impossible to look through all the items.
03:58
So go on a weekday,
04:00
and if you do wanna go on a weekend,
04:02
in the morning because that’s when they open up
04:04
and not a lot of people are there.
04:06
During the weekends people like to sleep in.
04:08
So go in the morning if you wanna go on a weekend.
04:11
But it’s much easier to shop during a weekday.
04:14
My final tip is to learn basic Korean when you go to the shops.
04:18
A lot of them might speak English,
04:20
but it’s just easier and friendlier if you do so.
04:23
Some phrases or two phrases that I will share with you guys is,
04:27
“Eolma eyo?” That’s “How much is it?”
04:30
“Kkag-ajuseyo” and that translates to “Can I get a discount?”
04:34
So, I hope those tips are helpful and now let’s get on to the haul.
04:38
Everything I bought in this haul is 10,000 won or less.
04:42
So that means it’s less than ten dollars.
04:45
So I did pick up a good amount of stuff.
04:48
So I will share with you guys now.
04:50
And first we have this blue blouse.
04:53
And I really love the sleeves because you can tie it
04:55
and it’s just very cutesy and lovely.
04:58
And I love the color.
04:59
That blouse I believe was 10,000 won.
05:02
And the next top I have is this shirt right here.
05:05
And I just love this pattern.
05:07
This was only 5,000 won.
05:09
And I believe I bought it with one of the skirts,
05:12
so I got a discount, actually.
05:14
Moving on to bottoms now.
05:16
The skirt I bought the shirt with is this long, pleated one.
05:20
And I just really like this because
05:21
it’s just nice and flowy and perfect for the summer.
05:24
The other white skirt I picked up is this floral one right here.
05:27
And it’s just super lovely.
05:29
And I love how it shows off a little bit of black.
05:33
Both of those were 10,000 won
05:35
but because I bought some stuff,
05:37
they give me like a 2,000 won discount,
05:39
which is something I’m always down for.
05:41
Next, we have these black shorts right here
05:44
and there’s a ribbon in here.
05:46
With this, you can wear something very plain on the top
05:48
and your outfit will still look complete because of this cute detail.
05:52
Next, I bought some comfy shorts to wear around the house
05:55
and also the gym if I ever decide to go back.
05:58
And here they are. Each of these were 5,000 won each.
06:02
Both of them are gray.
06:03
And finally, something that I can never pass by
06:08
when I’m shopping underground are socks.
06:10
Korean socks are super soft.
06:12
And there are always so many to choose from.
06:15
And each of these were about 900 won.
06:17
But if you look closely at the tag, it says 3,500 won.
06:22
So if you go to certain stores,
06:25
they actually sell these socks for this price.
06:28
I’ve been really into these transparent-like socks.
06:32
Where it shoes a little bit of skin. It’s very mesh.
06:35
And I just love how these look with tennis shoes
06:38
or even sandals.
06:40
I also got it in pink,
06:42
a striped one,
06:43
as well as just plain ones with a pink and gray detail.
06:48
I hope you guys found this video helpful.
06:49
This was one of the most highly requested videos from me
06:52
to go to an underground shopping center and share a haul.
06:55
So, I finally did it.
06:57
And don’t forget to check out Q2HAN
06:59
to check out their 30,000 won outfit challenge
07:02
from Express Bus Terminal.
07:04
And I do wanna say
07:05
I love how in Korea you can buy a full cute outfit for an affordable price.
07:11
And I feel like with 30 dollars you can buy a shirt in America.
07:16
Like maybe two shirts.
07:17
Definitely check out the Korean fashion here.
