SALE. A shopaholic’s favorite word that has them whip out their card and cash in a flash as they make a beeline towards the shops. Well, get ready because the Korea Grand Sale is headed your way in October, where your wallet is guaranteed to be emptied out- fast.
What is it?
The Korea Grand Sale is an annual shopping tourism festival aimed at foreign tourists. Previously held during the winter season, this year it has arrived early and will be held from 1st of October to 31st October all around Korea. Around 20,519 stores from 222 businesses of all different types are expected to participate.
What’s in it for me?
Benefits include 50% off a pass to Everland, up to 80% off selected items at Lotte Duty-free, an additional free night’s stay at the Ibis Ambassador Hotel in Myeongdong, and more. As an overseas guest in Korea, you can shop till you drop with items marked down at ridiculous prices and enjoy awesome discounts up to 50% off for products and services in the sectors of fashion, beauty, food & beverages, accommodation, entertainment and more. Customers can also enjoy various shopping offers from the participating companies with just one coupon, which you can find on the official website.
Is shopping the only thing I can do ?
Oh no, it doesn’t just end there. You can get a warm welcome as soon as you get your first breath of Korean air with an airport welcoming event held on the first day (1st of October) at Incheon and Gimpo International Airport.
Many of you are also probably K-Pop fans, so, of course, you won’t want to miss out on the Grand K-Pop performance taking place at Seoul Yeongdongdaero and COEX on the 30th of September. So far 2PM, who we rate 10 out of 10 in the eye candy and abs scale are the first confirmed participants, with the rest to be revealed on the site as the date draws closer.
Additionally, you can enter for a chance to win a date with a Hallyu star. Yup, that’s right. You could be sitting across the table, gazing into the eyes of your favorite actor or singer as he feeds you cake or link arms with them as you stroll around the shops. Previous stars include Super Junior’s Leeteuk and Kangin and SS301. The winner also receives free round trip flight tickets and hotel vouchers. Sounds like a dream come true, right?
