Starbucks Euljiro International Building Branch, Seoul Euljiro Cafe

On July 27, 1999, Starbucks landed in South Korea with its first store in front of Ewha Womans University. Initially, there were controversies due to coffee being pricier than a meal, but now Starbucks has firmly established itself in South Korea. It has also become a global company, following in the footsteps of McDonald’s, creating a new global index alongside the Big Mac Index.

Particularly, within a 1km radius of Gwanghwamun Square, it boasts the highest number of Starbucks stores, even more than in New York, showcasing an impressive density.

Thanks to this, finding a Starbucks around Seoul City Hall, Gwanghwamun, and Euljiro area is not a difficult task. Perhaps due to the many office buildings in the area, Starbucks has established its presence all around.
