This is the first in a bimonthly series highlighting our top 5 purchases from the Korean online store GMarket. GMarket for those who don’t know is an online marketplace similar to both Amazon Marketplace and eBay back in the United States, UK etc. You can purchase items through the website from some of the companies and have them delivered worldwide, whilst other products are only available domestically in South Korea. The range of different products stretches from clothing and cosmetics to groceries and household products.

Our top 5 products are a wide mix with each one being from a different product category. They may not all be super interesting but we’ve found each useful in their own way.

Buying a box of Korean Plums, Green Plums or Maesil (매실) is somewhat of a tradition here in South Korea, and at this price is was worth a go. The quality was good enough for making Maehwasu, but a little low for other things.

A nice accessory for runner, joggers or those who want to keep their phone in their pockets/bag. It doubles as a wireless headset, so you can chat whilst exercising. It can drain the phone battery a little if used for a prolonged period.
