Tips for you
We went for the Modern House, not knowing how HUGE it is. Next time, we'll plan a whole day trip, to be able to explore all the shops. Especially as it has a variety of options for lunch and/or coffee
I have been to this mall every time I have visited Seoul (3x now) and while I enjoy the selection the mall has to offer (mostly mainstream brands like Muji, Uniqlo, Zara etc), you'd probably do better price wise in Myeondong/Dongdaemun/Gasan Digital Complex, especially if you're looking for Korean fashion. That being said, this mall is huge and you could easily spend a day here. It is quite a way from Myeongdong (where I usually stay when I visit Seoul), so you might want to take that into consideration if you have time constraints. Also, if you go to the food court, it is self service. That is, you order from a group of cashiers in the back, pay, and then you get a buzzer where you then go to the appropriate vendor to pick up your food. At the time, I went, they didn't have English menus, so I had to take a picture of what I wanted and then show it to the cashier. Also, I noticed August tends to be a big sale month and that there was a big event for SPAO (leading Korean clothing chain) selling clothes at bargain prices just outside the mall. I do not know if this is a regular event, but probably something to keep in mind if you love their clothing.
