|Walking along the streets of Myeongdong - my favorite exercise. Lol!|
Anyway, allow me to walk you through the streets of Myeongdong and let me show you what to see, buy, and eat while you're there. :)
|Let the shopping begin!|
For starters, there's makeup. Lots and lots of Korean makeup brands, with stores sitting side by side. There's practically an Etude House, Missha, and Tony Moly branch in every block!
|Banila Co. and Song Ji Hyo.|
|Beyond and Kim Soo Hyun.|
|Beyond's Alice in Wonderland makeup line! *squeals*|
|Cathy Cat Code and Moomin.|
|Nature Republic and EXO.|
|About Me and Sistar.|
|Club Clio and Gong Hyo Jin.|
|Inside Innisfree, where I bought quite a handful of skincare items.|
|A'Pieu and Doraemon.|
|Laneige is love.|
There are also a handful of souvenir shops in Myeongdong, which sell not just the usual keychains and fridge magnets, but Kpop merchandise as well.
|This souvenir shop right beside Beyond is my favorite.|
Brand name shops like Lacoste, Cath Kidston, Tommy Hilfiger, Forever 21, H&M, and Uniqlo can also be found in Myeondong. There are a few department stores in the area as well, including the Lotte Young Plaza and the Shinsegae Department Store.

|Myeongdong Cathedral (it's right across the Cath Kidston store, you can't miss it).|
|When you don't have a selfie stick...|
|The huge tree beside the Cathedral.|
I took a break from all the shopping and walking at the nearby Holly's Coffee. There are a few other coffee shops in the area, like Starbucks and The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf.
|Song Jae Rim! :)|
|Lasagna and Mint Chocolate Latte.|
|Surprise, there's a Christmas tree in my coffee!|
|Inside the Line Friends Store and Cafe.|
|Thank you to the two Korean schoolgirls who took this photo of me with Brown. :)|
|Hello Kitty Cafe!|
|Because Korean street food is best enjoyed in Korea. :)|
|Gaspard et Lisa.|
You can take the Subway, line 4 Myeongdong Station exit 6.
Or if you're coming from the Incheon Airport, you can take the Limousine Bus No. 6001 or 6015.
If you're unsure, just take a cab and say, "Myeongdong kase-yo?" which is what I did. Haha!
