The store also offers a variety of snacks, including trending items in Korea. There is a frozen food section with Yangnyeom chicken and grilled dumplings with Japchae, to name a few.

The Korean celebrity merchandise area features photo books, plastic holders, and key holders with photos of celebrities, while the Korean cosmetics area offers skincare products and makeup items.
