A few weeks back, I noticed that they're constructing a Forever 21 shop in Myeongdong, which seems odd to me, because I tend to think of Seoul as one large Forever 21 store.
I know that their products are manufactured in Korea, but has Forever 21 grown so much that they're now considered "name brand"? I'm kind of skeptical about its potential for success since I can find Forever 21 type clothes for half the price all over Myeongdong, Kangnam, and Edae. I even remember buying a dress for man-won two summers ago in Edae, only to find the dress at Forever 21 for $30.
Just this week, we were looking around the underground shopping area at 고속터미널 when I spotted these earring for 1000 won a piece.
Cyndi and I will be sure to check out the Myeondong Forever 21 before we head back to the Homeland. If the Myeongdong Forever 21 isn't open yet, I'm sure it will open soon. Shops are built at lightning speed in Korea.
