Electronics shopping in Seoul

Written by admin on July 11, 2008 – 2:46 pm -

I often receive queries if there is an equivalent of Radio Shack in Seoul or South Korea for that matter. Radio Shack is an electronics and parts store that is available throughout the continental U.S. and a few other countries. In fact there was an official Radio Shack store in Makati located at the car park near SM. 

Even with the prevalence of internet shopping, I often want to see and touch the goods that I purchase so above is a google earth photo of Yongsan and I’ve labeled the buildings with a short description of what’s where over there.

A – IPark Mall

      1F – Camera’s / Navigation / Gadgets
      2F – Home Appliances
      3F – Home Appliances
      4F – Computers  Console games (Xbox, PS2, PS3, Nintendo)
      5F – Computers / Musical Instruments / Pro Audio and DJ Equipment
      6F – Home Appliances / Computers

B – ET Land 

      B   – Electronic Parts / Tools / Test and Measuring Equipment
      1F – Home Appliances (LCD TV’s, Washing Machines / Recliners / Vacuum Cleaners / Heaters)
      2F – Camera’s / Mobile Phones / Gadgets / Hifi Audio and Home Theater )
      3F – Computers
      4F – Computers
      5F – Food Court / Console Games (XBox, PS2, PS3, Nintendo) / Hobby Shops 

C – Mobile phones / Tools

D – Computers / Peripherals / Cables

E – Tools / Lighting Fixtures / CCTV 

F – Lighting Fixtures

Lastly Yongsan RC, where they sell remote control vehicles such as cars / planes and helicopters. The staff are really nice and friendly.

So how do you get there? Find your way to Yongsan subway station and you should be right smack in the middle of the iPark Mall.

Other places that sell gadgets, electronics and hobby shops :

Technomart Gangbyeon (Gangbyeon) Subway Line 2
Technomart Sindorim (Sindorim) Subway Line 2
Kukje Electronics Center (Seocho) 

I will update this post as more information is gathered.

    my son and i were at yongsan yesterday… we go there for the not-so-crowded bookstore at the 5th floor of I’Mall… there’s a running mini carshow at Yongsan station too, sponsored by GM Daewoo… as for the electronics, i go there to see and test the goods (i got to try MSI Wind yesterday) but i’d still prefer to buy online for the price… ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

    Is Yongsan RC still operating? I have been searching online to no avail until I chanced upon this site. I will be coming from Eulgiro il ga station so Yongsan is really close by.

    @Maurice, I believe it is. Although I have left Korea since 2009. Their online shop is still operational so I’m guessing there are still around. Here’s the URL to the shop’s internet page.
