Shopping in Myeongdong (명동) Seoul, Korea with Nanta ...

After visiting the traditional Namdaemun market we quickly turned our attention to nearby Myeongdong which is one of the most popular shopping districts on the North side of Seoul. Only just a short walk from one another it's quite fascinating going from such a traditional Korean market to one that is very modern and trendy. Typically, the area is frequented mostly by young Korean adults but it is also very popular with tourists and expat foreigners. It's the kind of place trendy young Koreans go for people watching, street food and fine dining.

One of the main draws, aside from shopping are the various cultural performances that often take place. We were treated to a Nanta theater performance that showcased a talented group performing culinary theatrics. With expert precision the performers wielded their knives in a very skillful manner dicing, slicing and chopping anything that was on the table. I loved how animated all them looked performing their routines with such charisma and smiles plastered on their faces.

After being mesmerized by the free performance we then wandered around looking for shoes and boots. I was lucky enough to find a pair of red running shoes that were literally the nicest pair I've ever owned; thanks to Audrey for buying me such a nice early birthday present. Feeling tired from our activities for the day, one of the highlights was sharing a giant ice cream soft serve cone. It was the biggest one either of us had ever tried. Other highlights included sampling more street food and jostling with the crowds.

기존의 남대문 시장 방문 후 우리는 신속하게 서울의 북쪽에서 가장 인기있는 쇼핑 지구 중 하나가 근처 명동에 우리의 관심을 돌 렸습니다. 서로 단지 짧은 도보 매우 현대적이고 세련된 하나에 같은 한국의 전통 시장에서가 매우 흥미 롭군요. 일반적으로,이 지역은 한국 젊은 성인에 의해 주로 자주하지만 그것은 또한 관광객과 외국인 외국인에게 매우 인기가 있습니다. 그것은 최신 유행의 젊은 한국인, 거리 음식과 고급 레스토랑을보고 사람에 대한 이동 장소의 종류.

주요 중 하나는 옆 쇼핑에서 자주 일어나는 다양한 문화 공연이다립니다. 우리는 요리 연극을 수행하는 재능있는 그룹을 전시 난타 극장 공연을 처리했다. 전문가의 정밀 공연은 테이블에 있던 아무것도 저미고 잘게, 매우 숙련 된 방식으로 다이 싱 자신의 칼을 휘둘렀다. 내가 얼마나 사랑하는지 애니메이션 그 같은 카리스마와 그들의 얼굴에 반죽 미소와 함께 자신의 루틴을 수행 보았다 모두.

Here were are in Myeongdong probably the most popular shopping district in all of Seoul. It is more of an upscale place. It is sort of a market type environment where everything is stores and upscale boutiques, clothing shops and expensive restaurants. Swanky this and swanky that.

Come join me for a walk in Myeong Dong.

Look at what we got here. Nice! Is it big enough? Take a bit of that. Take a look at this. I think it is big enough to share. Is that the biggest ice cream you've ever had? Yeah, that is really good.

And here in Myeongdong a little girl having her caricature drawn.

We have Louis Vitton and of course that is a store I can afford.

One of my favorite stores in the world is massive here in Seoul - Forever 21 and we are looking here for boots.
