There are many different shopping malls at the dongdaemun area! I recommend going to the good morning city mall for a great selection of clothes at affordable prices! You can also bargain for a lower price at the shops.

Dongdaemun / Sindangdong
For shopping enthusiasts, Dongdaemun is a must visit.
Enormous shopping centres – stacked with multiple
levels of boutique and independent shops – offer the
latest in Korean fashion, cosmetics, accessories, and
other goods while prices are relatively low. The night
shopping (between late night and early morning) is
particularly well known here, making Dongdaemun a
place where you can literally shop until you drop. If
