Due to the conservative atmosphere, the area nearby the Korean Presidential residence, has not been developed for a long time. Still it somehow looks like the time has stopped in the 80s.
As the Seoulites got tired of the urban chic places and started appreciating for more local stuff, this area became the 'it place'.
The locals wanted to keep the way the area used to look like, and Gagarin is one of the old book shop managed by the local, trying to preserve the town.

In order to keep the 'analogue' sentiment, they don't even have email address to make a contact, neither a website to search what books they have. Don't even think about anything like a newsletter.

You can just stop by and leave your book with the price you want to receive, and they will sell it for you.
