This is not a Western-style department store, but a large gift shop devoted to traditional Korean items, such as quilts, baby hanbok clothing, norigae, masks, fans, souvenirs, trinkets, short Korean-style dinner tables, and ceramics.

In 2010, the Los Angeles City Council formally declared Koreatown's borders as Western Avenue, Olympic Boulevard, Vermont Avenue, and 3rd Street, with a business corridor on Western from 3rd to Rosewood Avenue.
