This was pretty neat being able to see a movie in Korea. The theater played English movies and the theater was in a mall!

Each movie theater is spacious with lots of seating. It's especially busy during the holidays but it's well worth it and it's a great location right near Gangnam. Also conveniently close to shopping malls and the subway.

Korean Movie Theaters are very different from Theaters in other countries. It is an experience in and of itself to go to a movie. You get pre-assigned seats, so there is no rush to grab a good seat.

Samseongdong / COEX
A large business hub, Samseongdong is anchored by
Korea’s World Trade Center, where many important
business exhibitions and meetings are held. The
enormous COEX mall sprawls underground, providing a
myriad of things to do and see, including a large
aquarium and movie theater. For a bit of peace and
zen, head over to the ornate Bongeunsa Temple which is
one of Korea’s most important places of worship. Or
