DAISO (다이소/大创/大創/ダイソー) is a large franchise of Dollar Stores (like a Dollar Tree/1000-won shop/100円ショップ) in Korea. You can find thousands of items from home supplies to stationary for relatively low prices.

You can find lots of DAISO stores in Seoul. DAISO in Myeongdong district (명동본점/明洞总店/明洞本店) is a small store but always crowded with tourists. I think it is a great place to buy souvenirs or travel supplies.
