At Kyobo Book Store Gwanghwamun, peruse some 2.3 million volumes, including English-language books, as well as stationary and knickknacks. This flagship store breathed new life into the depressed Korean publishing industry when it opened in 1981, built beneath the headquarters of its parent company Kyobo. If you're looking for anything in particular, the store employs electronic categorization, allowing you to search for titles both in English and Korean, and English-speaking staff attend the information desks. Look out for the branch's book-of-the-month event, where authors take part in Q&A sessions on site.

Just a spectacle! Giant book store inside the mall; a fun stop while in Seoul! Plenty of options for those who wish to purchase, or just relax and enjoy the atmosphere.

This bookstore has a lot to offer. It has a neat selection of foreign books, but it also has an awesome selection of stickers and decals for those who like to journal. After or during your browsing there is also a cafeteria that has a menu that for all taste. I highly suggest checking it out, and it's location is perfect for those who also want to check out some of Seoul touristic areas and shop for books.
