If you go to Dongdaemun, you won't miss this skycraper; Doota. Do you know what Doota means?
Yoona and Seohyun pitching for Doosan Bears baseball team.
두산타워 - Doosan Tower. If you read Hangul, Doota is the abbreviation of 두타. It was first opened on February 26th, 1999 and now is the roof of many Korean own aspiring fashion designers. If you want to know the feel and look of Dongdaemun, I urge you to watch Cinderella Man
starring Kwon Sang Woo and Yoona from SNSD.

From my experience, it is very hard to go against the temptation to buy everything on the floor!! ^^ Korean fashion can be classified from pretty to downright absurd at times but generally the clothes are wearable. However, the choices or sizes available mostly are suitable for slimmer girls and the plump ones might need more time to shop around. There's also an online shopping option : http://doota.ogage.co.kr/
Decoration for Christmas at the entrance door.
After you are done with shopping especially during winter, stop by at
Beansbins coffee for a sip of hot coffee and to rest your sore feet.
All restaurants are situated at 7th floor.
