This was pretty neat being able to see a movie in Korea. The theater played English movies and the theater was in a mall!

Are all popcorn in Korea movie theaters stale? That's my only complaint and I've seen two movies in one week.

Each movie theater is spacious with lots of seating. It's especially busy during the holidays but it's well worth it and it's a great location right near Gangnam. Also conveniently close to shopping malls and the subway.

Pretty cool place. Lots of movies, $9 for adult tickets. Very organized establishment. Comfortable seats, clean with a handbag holder behind each chair! Only in Korea! A great experience.

Korean Movie Theaters are very different from Theaters in other countries. It is an experience in and of itself to go to a movie. You get pre-assigned seats, so there is no rush to grab a good seat.

As with most korean movie theaters, you get more than what you expect. The venue, customer service, and seating are awesome.... Being American.. Once you figure out the system... you come to realize that this place is all about the movie goer.

Samseongdong / COEX
A large business hub, Samseongdong is anchored by
Korea’s World Trade Center, where many important
business exhibitions and meetings are held. The
enormous COEX mall sprawls underground, providing a
myriad of things to do and see, including a large
aquarium and movie theater. For a bit of peace and
zen, head over to the ornate Bongeunsa Temple which is
one of Korea’s most important places of worship. Or
