“COEX Gangnam Style!”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Located in the heart of the Gangnam disctrict which everyone around the world has come to know thanks to Psy's song "Gangnam Style" Loads of fun and activities to keep you busy for hours and hours. Lots of nice places to eat or just simply sit and watch the world go by. Weekly exhibits and conventions, some free of charge to peruse and collect free souvenir give aways by companies and organizations. A must visit when in Seoul.

“Just a Large Mall”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

COEX is very large, but it is just a mall with Food Courts, Restaurants, Shopping and a Movie Theater. It was a bit difficult in getting around.

“All in one place”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

If you happen to visit Seoul during rainy season and look for a place to spend the day in shade, COEX is it. You can have almost everything there. There are many restaurants where you can enjoy traditional Korean foods, to western style foods and many Asian restaurants as well. After the meal, you can spend your time in theater, aquarium, or shopping area. All's under one roof.

“Just another big mall”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

Absolutely nothing special here. Just one among many expensive shopping centers in Seoul. Pass it up and visit Bongeunsa across the street instead.
