We’ve covered New York City, London, and Tokyo when it comes to must-have local items to buy. So the next city on our list is definitely Seoul, the land of limited-edition cosmetics and K-pop merch. Apart from the obvious, here are some essentials you absolutely shouldn’t miss out on. Add them to your wishlists now for our Boxers to shop for you easily:
Multi Vitamin & Mineral Power Plus, Minuherb, KRW189,000, + Add To Wishlist: While diet pills aren’t always a surefire way of losing way, the Koreans have deduced that it’s imperative to stock up on supplements along with vitamins if you’re planning to shed a few kilos. Those who are cutting down on meal portions and working out at the same time, try adding these Minuherb multivites to your diet to ensure that your health is kept in check throughout your weight loss plan.
Seaweed, Pop Kim, KRW4,000, + Add To Wishlist: You can’t go wrong with seaweed when shopping in Korea, especially the limited-edition flavours that you can only get in the country. Pop Kim’s seaweed flavours are delectable and a favourite with our Shoppers for good reason. Try the Bulgogi-flavoured one for an interesting, savoury twist!
Korean Fan Merch, Ebay, KRW10,000, + Add To Wishlist: A fan of K-pop boybands? No better place to score limited-edition band merch and signed autographs than in Seoul. Enlist the help of our Boxers to get your favourite celebrity’s merchandise – they can clinch it for you even if it’s only available on eBay too!
Honey Mustard Chips, Lotte, KRW1,380, + Add To Wishlist: This one doesn’t need any introduction, not when the Honey Butter Chip craze had spread across Asian countries after its release in Korea. Lotte Mart is known for its awesome range of snacks, one of which includes the Honey Butter Chips (which spawned other addictive flavoured snacks in its wake, including Wasabi Almonds and Honey Butter Almonds). Ask your Boxer what’s the latest snack that’s hitting the shelves in Seoul for a well-curated snack box.
Secret Essence Mist/Mask, Su:m37, KRW22,500, + Add To Wishlist: For beauty lovers, Seoul is a one-stop for everything cosmetics related. From snail mucus creams to horse oil moisturisers, makeup and skincare in Seoul never fail to surprise us with its one-of-a-kind products. While some Korean brands are available in many countries, get your hands on brands that you can’t find in your home country. Or better yet, buy your favourites in bulk from Seoul to save money in the long run.
Moomin Women’s Slipper Socks, Gmarket, KRW1,290, + Add To Wishlist: One of our favourite things to get from Seoul are socks. And if you’re wondering what’s so special about these accessories, it has got to do with the eclectic prints and snazzy colours they come in. Case in point: These seriously adorable socks emblazoned with Moomin that will complete your OOTD in no time.
Omija Tea Stick, Lottemart, KRW21,000, + Add To Wishlist: Green tea has its roots in Japan, while London’s got a swell range of English teas for the connoisseur. But Korea boasts a unique traditional tea of its own too: Omija-cha or magnolia berry tea. Known for its intriguing five-flavour combination (sweetness, sourness, bitterness, saltiness, and pungency), Omija can be served hot or cold and comes with a chockfull of health benefits.
