This is a fairly large mall in the Dongdaemun district that sells a lot of clothing, food and cosmetics. The bottom few floors are offer a lot of casual clothing for both men and women with a food court located in Basement 1. There are generally a lot of Chinese tourists and what irritated me and my group is that majority of the people working in Doota don't speak English and often assumed we can understand Mandarin. When we told them that we don't understand Mandarin, some of them rolled their eyes like it was a burden to them.
One shop in particular called Drawings had a lady snap at me a couple of times cause I don't understand Korean or Chinese and she insisted I pay KRW10,000 (USD10) for getting a TINY bit of my foundation on a dress I tried on as the clothing apparently needed to go for 'special laundry' service. I thought that was ridiculous and offered to have the dressed wiped with a wet towel but she acted like it was the biggest problem ever and started throwing a tantrum at me in front of everyone (mind you, everything was in Mandarin and again, I actually have no idea what she was saying to me).
Got scammed out of KRW10,000 and I decided to pay up cause she looked like she was about to go ape-crazy on me. I left the mall with mixed-feelings of being treated like I'm some uncivilised Chinese tourist. Worst shopping experience ever and it totally spoiled my mood to ever shop in Dongdaemun and Doota Mall ever again.
