Hair salons used to be exclusive for women customers, but nowadays, men are also becoming frequent customers. Diverse services are being offered including perms, cut, dye, nail care, and makeup.
The price varies depending on the service. For regular cuts, the average is around 8,000 won and perms range from 20,000 won to 100,000 won.
Korea has an advanced bathing culture. Many people visit the public bath once every 1~2 weeks to soak in hot water and get rid of dried skin.
Koreans take off all their clothes when using the bath. Going to a bath with someone you know also implies a deeper friendship, since it is not easy trying to bathe naked together if you aren't close.
Conventional Market (5-Day Market)
Foods, clothing and commodities sellers gather at the conventional markets. They provide goods at cheap prices, and allow for negotiation on price and quantity. We can witness the lives of Korean people at the markets.

Supermarkets offer snacks, vegetables, meat and beverages, and are easy to access since there are usually several in every neighborhood. We can often buy goods here at discounted prices (about 10%).

TV Home Shopping
With TV home shopping, we can place orders via phone while watching advertisements on TV. Diverse items are available, including clothing, foods, cosmetic goods, electronics and insurance products. While home shopping can be convenient, we need to be careful to prevent impulse buying.

Through an online shopping mall, we can place orders online, and buy a wide range of items. Take note that items may look different on the screen than in real life. You will need to provide personal information to shop online, including your resident registration number.
