Sizing in Korea

Sizing will also be different when shopping in Korea. We recommend researching what size you would be in Korea before going shopping. This will help limit some of the stress once you find a store you are interested in. If you are a woman over a size 12 trouser or size 8 shoe, you may find trouble finding things that fit. However, it’s still worth shopping since Korea has a great deal of unisex or free-size clothes that are quite cute.

Arario Gallery & Sculpture Plaza

Arario Art Gallery

Including the Sculpture Plaza and two-story Arario Gallery, you’ll find 3 floors of art displayed on the same block as Shinsegae Mall. Arario Gallery, located above Starbucks, is accessible via a stairway. We wouldn’t recommend a stroller unless you call the gallery ahead of time and ask an attendant if they can meet you on the first floor. There is an elevator, but it’s not available for public use.

The manager of the Cheonan Bus Terminal and the Cheonan Shinsagae is also the artist who owns the Arario Galleries and sculpture plaza. He also has galleries in places like Seoul and Jeju. The top floor of the Arario Gallery holds one of his private artist studios.

Located next to Shinsagae, this gallery is a must visit for contemporary art lovers. Owned by artist Ci Kim who also works out of a studio in the penthouse, this gallery/museum is an wonderful place to learn more about what art looks like in Korea in the present day. With only a 3,000 entrance fee its the perfect place to escape the heat and wrap yourself in creativity. Ci Kim is both an artist and a collector so the shows are well curated and documented. English language exhibition information is available. We love it here. The gallery is also who hosts the sculpture park located just outside. Pro Tip: If you click on the arrow in the header image you can also see a video of one of Ci Kims past solo-exhibitions at Arario Gallery in Cheonan.

Parking and Parking Fees

The Shinsegae Mall has a substantial amount of parking. Additionally, a few parking garage entrances exist on different sides of the building. At times, getting in and out of the Cheonan Shinsegae Mall may be challenging during high traffic times. Allowing yourself 15 or 20 minutes to carefully may decrease the stress of visiting this busy department store and mall.

Shinsegae Mall does have parking fees. You can get discounts on parking by buying things or doing things at the mall. However, this is not a “keep your receipts” situation. Instead, you need to give your license plate when you pay for your items.

The parking discount is given at the register when you checkout. That means you will need to give the last 4 digits of your license plate number to the cashier. We recommend having a photo of your car license plate and showing that to them. It will make the process easier.

Shinsegae Mall exists about a 30-minute walk or 10-minute taxi ride from Cheonan Station. The following information may help you take public transit to the Cheonan Shinsagae Mall.
