This library is famous among tourists who come to South Korea, located inside COEX Mall in Gangnam district, you can find lots of book genre in many languages, they alo provide book store if you want to get the books or magazines you like.

The vibe is actually kind of not suitable to read some book there because it's usually quite packed with tourists taking pics and stuff, but they do providing some corner and reading tables if you still want to read your book on the spot.

Such a big mall. We went here because of that "instagramable book store"... Apart from the book store, just the usual mall with lots of dining and shopping options. Near Gangnam District, though we didn't go there anymore.

会議での利用(大ホール)。
COEXモール内には、ショップ、水族館、図書館があります。
図書館は、本を提供する体制というより、内装や雰囲気重視で外国人的には見ごたえあります。

I visited for meeting (large hall).
There are shops, aquariums and libraries in the COEX Mall.
Libraries are more attractive to foreigners because of their emphasis on interior and atmosphere rather than the system of providing books.

There is a beautiful and instagrammable library inside the mall. They also provide prayers room for Muslim tourists so no need to worry if you want to do some shopping here.

It was one of the coldest but most memorable new year's eve countdown parties I ever experienced! The food stalls were up as early as noon and people started coming in early. There were plenty of security personnel around so it felt safe and was not hard to move around. The mall was open until 10pm. We had formal dinner before the countdown party. The program began at around 9pm and it was fun as expected with many Korean TV personalities in attendance. The fireworks did not disappoint too!! It was a night to remember!

I agree with most that the architectural display out side the Starfield COEX Mall is impressive to say the least. But inside? That's another story. Low ceilings, very dole and depressive. We felt as encased for a lack of better words.

It does not represent inside the modernistic approach from the outside. The quality of the stores are really average and we believed that a structure of this kind would have design better stores and with better choices. Most things once again, cheap Chinese stuff, disposable value items and again the infantile South Koreans with stores filled with teddy bears (for adult people) cute cartoon printed made in China socks (for adults) and the distribution of the stores....very confusing.

Not a well planned mall and nothing to offer except for the Starfield Library, which is really pretty and impressive. Two floors library with lots of colors and places to eat. Basically the only highlight of the Starfield COEX Mall which is pretty average.

Except for the Starfield Library which you can access directly from the streets, the rest of the mall is a waste of pure time. Not recommended.

Chance upon the stacks of books at an underground mall. It was beautiful. Apparently, you can get a book to read or just simply sit around the area. Nice place to visit.
