service

retail drones. at least most of them are good-looking.

tragically hip south korean communal retail hive. basement has a muji store, 6th floor is a synod of cafes, a wine bistro, upscale dining, a european trattoria, and a pan-asian noodle bar. the guts of the young plaza is every [with a few notable exceptions] major south korean mid-range, mass-market consumer label.
