( Nation-wide ) Reminding you : South Korean government administrative departments and Official institutions have been implementing Substitution Holiday System from 2014, where the next business day becomes a Holiday – if any National Holiday falls upon a Saturday, Sunday or any other existing Holiday .
( YongSan Electronics Market-wise ) then a system unique to this electronics district where buildings are divided into three categories, explained over on our dedicated Page on Top Menu :
- WholeSale-ONLY buildings, mostly behind main roads
- buildings with WholeSale AND consumer retail stores mixed together, usually in smaller buildings on main roads
- larger buildings AND mall complexes geared to the consumer AND support centres .
- above 1 & 2 : will take the original three days OFF, from February 7 Sunday until 9 Tuesday, while letting each smaller stores decide on their own to take the next 10 Wednesday OFF or not .
- above 3 : will keep on their own schedules, which would be open throughout the Lunar NEW Years holidays, so Happy Shopping ;
[ Appendix ] geographically from North-West and clock-wise :
- JeonJa (Electronics) Land – YongSan Branch open 10am~7:30pm and WeekEnds until 8pm
- ( Bus Terminal SangGa building which would be in this category, is currently being rebuilt into international hotel property )
- (HyunDai) iPark Mall open 10:30am~8:30pm and WeekEnds until 9pm
exception : H&M, Muji, Top10 and Uniqlo until 10pm
( Up-Coming ) You would have noticed massive construction going-on on both sides (West and East) of iPark Mall atop YongSan KTX Train Station, where new Duty-Free shops (to fully open March 2016) and deluxe hotels (expected 2017) are being built, to make this the latest multi-shopping complex following Haeundae Centum City (open 2005) and YeongDeungPo Times Square (open 2009).
