It’s time to leave Korea and you’re scratching your head over what to buy for your friends, colleagues and loved ones. In the old days, Korean snacks, cosmetics and fashion were legendary items exclusive to those who’ve actually been to Korea. But nowadays everything from Pepero to Tony Moly can found in malls in Singapore, Malaysia, Taipei etc. In many cases you don’t even gain significant savings buying in Korea.
Well there’s still one thing that can prove you’ve actually been to Korea and that’s a Korean movie poster. Korean cinemas release posters for every new release, so it’s a unique souvenir that can’t be replicated if someone went to Korea 3 months later. Posters are free so just saunter over to the nearest CGV / Lotte Cinema / Megabox and have your fill.
