I used to enjoy visiting this market to buy game software and purchase computer parts but not anymore since I’m getting older and busy to make a living. One of my hobbies is making my own high-end gaming desktop. Whenever I had a chance to get to this place, I was always excited to get those electronics. I would say that most guys have this kind of fantasy about electronic items, right?
Yongsan Electronics Market is a wholesale mall with over 5,000 electronic stores. You can find all kinds of electronic merchandises here. Console hardware and software, PC gaming hardware and software, all parts of a PC, digital cameras, mobile phones, home appliances like DVDs and TVs and so on, you can get anything you need as long as they’re electronics. Prices are also about 15~30% cheaper than most of other shops in Seoul.
This building is one of the oldest malls in this market which is called Sunin Sanga. You can still find a lot of items here. Most of them are parts or small pc items.
Some of shops are displaying laptops and you can buy a second-hand product at such a low price. I would rather buy a new one though.
This shop is for ASUS hardware. Look at those beautiful ASUS laptops. They provide high performance to play high-end games.
This mall is one of the most recent buildings in this place and it’s called ET Land. Most shops here have home appliances and finished products.
These are what you’re going to need when you build your own desktop. There could be a few more but these are fundamental parts to operate your computer when it’s completed.
I got some images of pretty desktops so you can customize your own fashionable desktop in your own way.
This is my own customized one. I built it myself but it’s the older one. I actually have a newer and better one now, ha. I just couldn’t find the pictures.
Here’s some more information about this place if you’re interested in visiting here to chace after your fantasies.
