Shopping isn't just a means to acquire clothes and other necessities. To a lot of people, especially women, shopping is a form of diversion.

This is what you call, retail therapy. Like comfort foods and alcoholic drinks, shopping is a way to relieve stress for some people. You focus on buying things of your liking and disregard your other issues. You solely focus on your shopping spree and the sense of accomplishment it would give you when you buy something fancy and fab.

But, of course let's not stray away from the primary reason why a person needs to go shopping. And that is? To buy goods. As simple as that.

In lieu to that, let me introduce you to some renowned shopping places in Seoul.
