The Gangnam district is full of many international brands like MUJI and UNIQLO. There are also lots of larger local brands such as Innisfree and Olive Young. You can also get anything here! 

Other than shopping on the streets with the larger brands, there are smaller shops in the underground shopping malls (강남역 지하도상가). The underground shopping mall is linked to Gangnam subway station (강남역)!
