  • About

    COEX Mall is the largest underground shopping mall in Asia and is connected to several exhibition halls, a convention center, a hotel, a department store and an office building. The mall houses around 260 stores and leisure facilities including fashion, beauty, entertainment and cultural spaces, and offers a pleasurable one-stop shopping experience, regardless of the weather.

    Korea’s first cultural & shopping complex

    As the largest underground shopping mall in Asia, COEX Mall has got everything you need, all in one place. Shopaholics and fashionistas will appreciate the hundreds of clothing and accessories stores carrying both domestic brands and international brands, as well as designer and luxury brands. The dining options are endless with the many restaurants and cafes that are available here. The Megabox Cineplex, one of Korea’s largest movie theater chains, is also located here, with a total of 17 screens. Other popular attractions at the mall include the Kimchi Museum, the COEX Aquarium, the ASEM Plaza and the Event Court, where various performances and exciting events such as classical concerts, mini concerts and magic shows are offered every week.
