Prices are high so i never shop here. Korea for some reason has high prices even if it's supposed to be duty free. Higher than anywhere in the world. The building in the picture is really not the best place. For computer parts there is a building across the street, older, only 3 floors. Most top of the line cutting edge stuff you won't find in Korea. You'll find 10 vendors all selling the same thing rather than 10 vendors trying to differentiate. Also beware, they will always try to rip you off. As you will realize, these places aren't crowded so the salespeople are desperate which means rather than give you a good deal they will try to rip you off. I wouldn't recommend this place to foreigners are nobody really speaks english. Definitely not a B and H like in Manhatten where everyone is knowledgable and they will answer any question regardless if you buy or not. Here, they are so salty about questions and are the least knowledgable salespeople i've ever encountered. You'll ask about the GH5 and they will try to recommend the G7. It's just annoying. I would avoid at all costs.

Not well signalized, very narrow range of products, nothing even near special or worth noting. Its just a regular commercial area, for locals. Even If I was local, I wouldnt go buy there unless I needed some hardware and couldnt buy online.

This market indicates the extensive area near Yongsan Station. Not paticular building or complex.
There are many small dealers in the area and many of them don't give good deals. That doesn't mean this market is full of ripoffs. However, unless you already know things you need and prices for them, you are very likely to be a victim. Also, most of them don't care much about foreign visitors. This is not like Myeongdong or Dongdaemun.
Tips: Good dealers are locating in the corners of less crowded areas mostly.

I don’t understand how anyone can give a positive review based on price. Prices are horrible even if you can haggle. They are trying to compete with somethings with full warranty. There are few shops in there worth visiting but most make me wonder how they remain in business. I walked around thinking there should be more, but there was not. Now that internet and fast delivery is available, I think this place will die out soon except for the shops that are offering quality goods and service.

needs a visit! cheap, accessible and well placed. At least 10% cheaper prices on various electronic items.

It's the best place for foreigners, who wants to purchase electronics like phones, tablets, cameras drones etc. Especially it is the best place for used electronics

This area is not really worth visiting. If looking for a computer or mobile phone, prices are not competitive at all although the ranges are good.

We went to Seoul for the holiday weekend and my top thing to do was to go to the Yongsan Electronics Market. I made it there on Sunday and about 70% of the stores were open. That was more than anyone could ask for. I spent the entire morning going floor after floor after floor back and forth like a kid in a candy shop. I'm pretty sure you can find anything your heart desires at this market. Go with a plan. Know what you are looking for and enjoy.

Not a place worth going unless you are looking for something specific and know the price.
Market is big, lot of second hand items and involves lot of bargaining.
its near the metro string.

went Yongsan last year despite the reviews of the place being shady and only suitable for locals as locals can bargain for a lower price. even my Korean friend didn't advise me to go there. but I still went to take a look.
was looking for digital door locks for my new house but had troubles finding it. didn't find that place shady or bad as described. lots of electronics shops and i don't think the prices are dirt cheap though. but perhaps a local could bargain and get a good price.

anyway after searching and was about to give up, passed by a digital lock sign and finally found a shop. bought 2 digital locks at the price of 1 digital lock (in my country, Singapore). so no complaints at all! people were quite friendly when we asked for directions too.
