Gangnam may have a reputation for ultra-luxurious shopping and expensive boutiques, but there are still plenty of deals to be found, especially at Gangnam Underground Shopping Center, which offers plenty of affordable shopping options in one convenient space. It hosts hundreds of small shops in its sprawling underground arcade and is conveniently attached to Gangnam Station. Inexpensive clothes, shoes, and accessories are all on sale here, making this shopping complex very popular amongst younger women.
Originally opened in the 1980’s, the complex underwent massive renovations and an expansion in 2011 to coincide with the opening of the Sinbundang Line at Gangnam Station. This brought not only many low to mid-priced brand stores to Gangnam Underground Shopping Center but also a number of franchise coffee and snack shops for a more comfortable shopping experience. Because Gangnam Station is a major transportation hub, it can get very crowded during rush hours, especially in the evening between 17:00 and 21:00. Therefore it's best to visit Gangnam Underground Shopping Complex in the late morning or afternoon for a more relaxed shopping experience.
