Giving Directions in Korea:
To get to the Homeplus, you need to take the subway to Oncheongjahng station, jump out of exit number 7, take the crosswalk across the main road and you’ll see it right there.
Giving Directions from an American perspective:
Take Busan Blvd up to 81st street. At the intersection of 81st and Busan Blvd, you’ll see Homeplus on the left hand side.
We’re dependent on cars in the states and in Korea, the subway is dominant and so are landmarks. I’ve never understood the lack of use of streets and the names of them. It’s always landmarks and subway stops. Of course, I’m using the subway so it’s more easy for me to refer to and yes, Koreans may be using other directions when they are driving….BUT, I believe they still use landmarks. It’s an interesting phenomena I’ve just gotten used to and if you come here, you will too.
