What does Seoul Selection stand for?
Seoul Selection means "Select Korean Goods Available in Seoul." In this age of information overload and mass marketing, we want to play the part of a dependable guide. We aim to help those looking for a taste of Korean culture to easily find quality samples. Whereas "collection" often refers to an exclusive assemblage of art or coveted items, "selection" lets one choose. In that sense, we give our customers access to affordable and appealing cultural works worthy of their attention. That is our basic philosophy.

Shop for Korean Cultural/Intellectual Products
Seoul Selection offers books about Korean art, literature, architecture, religion, and other topics translated into English, German, French, Japanese and Chinese. We also carry Korean films on DVD with English, Japanese and Chinese subtitles. Music lovers will find traditional and contemporary Korean music on CD, while children can explore Korean folk tales and other stories. Some gift and art items are also available for purchase. You can browse all of these selections, order espresso drinks and access the Internet at our store near Gyeongbokgung Palace.
For those who stay abroad or regional cities, Seoul Selection runs its own Internet shopping mall (
