The bottom couple of floors are packed with wedding shops selling Jewelry, Hanboks, wedding cards and more. We headed up to the second floor and found the shop that had been recommended to us. It was not as fancy as the first place which had a private waiting room and gave free drinks and fruit to snack on while waiting, but it was still professional and the staff were friendly.
In contrast to the first store we went to, the woman that served us spoke zero English. Jihyeon found some designs she liked AND they had just a plain band for me (the first store struggled with the idea of a plain band) so we set about discussing the price. I don't really understand the ins and outs of it, but in Korea if you pay cash they will knock 10% off the price straight away because you can (legally) avoid the sales tax. As an added bonus to seal the deal, because someone had recommended the store to us, the store gave Jihyeon some free ear rings and a free necklace. I decided to just pay for it all there and then, so I walked down to the ATM on the first floor and withdrew a rather large wad of 10,000 won (~AU$10) notes (annoyingly often the largest denomination available at ATM's in Korea) and returned to the store.
