Yongsan Y-Valley

Yongsan Electronics Shopping Mall emerged as a mecca for sales of computers and various electronic products in 1987 as a result of the government’s effort to foster the electronics industry. However, it experienced a crisis due to its failure to keep up with the rapidly changing trends after 2000. These trends involved the transfer of distribution channels to online channels due to the development of the internet. The area of Yongsan Electronics Shopping Mall was designated as an urban regeneration revitalization area in 2017, with the implementation of various urban regeneration projects. Eventually, Yongsan Electronics Shopping Mall currently made history following its development into “Digital-Maker City Yongsan Y-Valley” by revitalizing the preexisting distribution industry and fostering new industries such as drones, AR/VR, and robots.
