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.

Our Top 5 GMarket Purchases for May / June 2015
In no particular order:
1 – Hanil 14inch Standing Fan (then ₩22,900, now ₩26,300)
This is a good quality standing fan which is also a requirement during these hot humid summer months. The price has increase since we purchased one, but it’s still a good deal.
2 – Luxury Black Office Chair (₩64,900)
A perfect addition to a home office, easy to put together and super comfortable. We went for the 로망스검정(철발)포켓스프링 option.
3 – Korean Plums or Maesil 10kg (was ₩11,900, now unavailable)
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.
4 – inote Bluetooth Headphones BT-N6 (₩27,900)
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.
5 -Probest Dry Cat Food 9kg (₩18,900)
Carry a 9kg bag of cat food back from the supermarket is a hard task, therefore when you can get it cheaper and delivered to your door is a bit of a no-brainer.
