Hello, everyone! It's Creatrip, your group of Korean travel experts.
Where to do currency exchange at the best rate in Korea? I think the answer to most of you will be in Myeongdong. But what if I arrive in Seoul late and can't go to the currency exchange store? Look for the closest WOW Exchange around you!
Be sure to check out Creatrip's daily updated currency rates before heading over too! (*Wow Exchange rates updated on Creatrip is based on the Hongdae location's rates.)

WOW Exchange Currency MachineㅣHow to Get There
1. Zimfree Storage Centre, Hongdae
- 191 Yanghwa-ro, Seogyo-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul (서울 마포구 양화로 191)
- Hours: 06:00-18:00
Right next to Exit 3 of Hongdae Station. The yellow signboard is very eye-catchy.
This is the Wow Exchange automated currency machine. All exchange rate and operations are based on Creatrip's visit on 10/22.
Supporting 15 currencies.
2. L7 Hongdae
- 141 Yanghwa-ro, Mapo-gu, Seoul (서울 마포구 양화로 141)
- Hours: 06:00~24:00
Please go up to L7 lobby on the 21/F.
You can see that this rate is slightly different from the one at Zimfree because the rate of Wow Exchange depends on Google + low processing fee, which means is highly transparent and easy to inquire on the rate float online. Each passport can exchange maximum 2,000USD daily.
Wow Exchange's automated machines are great for those who are not in Myeongdong and looking to get monies exchanged at reasonable rates. Check our locations table to find the closest one to you!
