I don't think I've come across any street markets in Korea, apart from food.

You might like to take a look at Bongeunsa, by COEX.

Apart from this and a few parks it's not a beautiful area- finance centre and high end shops/clubs mainly.

We are in Seoul now and have been staying in Gangnam for 5 nights. So far food is decent with higher price in Gangnam, which is high end area in Seoul. You may want to head north to Dongdaemun for street market for clothing and accessories or Meyongdong for skincare and makeup.

Honestly Gangnam is full of offices and high end shops or malls only. Some smaller restaurants in the back streets may be cheaper but no English at all.
