[INFO] Where to Buy Jaejoong’s album ‘WWW’ offline, preferably near his concert venue COEX?

The nearest Hottracks to the concert venue COEX is Gangnam Branch.

Why should I purchase the album at Hottracks?
– Because it counts on Hanteo Chart for sure!

There are also Synnara Record branches in Seoul,

but they are not directly connected inside subway stations unlike the Hottracks branches mentioned below,
so it’s quite a hassle for you to try to find the shops.

Where is Hottracks Gangnam Branch?

– You only need to arrive at Sinnonhyeon Subway Station (신논현역), Exit 7
which is directly connected to Kyobo Bookstore (교보문고) that has HOTTRACKS in the 2nd basement level.

* Assistance for English, Japanese, and Chinese speaking foreigners is available at Hottracks
