My experience

I walked in and was greeted very nicely by the 3 workers in the shop. I communicated in English and some English was spoken at the store. I noticed many Japanese High School rugby jerseys and asked if anyone could speak Japanese (I am a Caucasian male). The owner spoke fluent Japanese and gave great customer service. I tried on Korean rugby shorts and a Korean rugby jersey. The shorts had no Korean Rugby Union logo on them and one was sown into the shorts whilst I waited. I was give a free coffee during this time. Please note when I went there he only had his brand Han`s Rugby Korean national rugby Jerseys available.

What did I buy?

Shorts (Excuse the poor photo) Think they cost 25,000 won from memory ( Maybe it was 35,000????) (The shorts have been worn multiple times before this photo was taken)

Jersey (The same one as in this photo) 60,000 won.

Verdict

If your after a cool rugby souvenir from Korea check it out!

Also if you live in South Korea and need rugby goods check it out!
