1) Music Instrument Shops can be found in/at:
a) Nakwon arcade in Seoul. There are several of music shops in just one block.
2) Shopping Malls:
a) COEX, Samseong Station on Seoul Metro Line 2 (at the intersection of Teheranno and Yeongdong Dae-ro). http://www.coexmall.com/eng/index.asp.
b) Lotte Mart - Seoul Station (walk out of the station, and instead of going down the stairs to the main road, turn left). I found some South African wine here, not a large selection, but I was rather pleased with my bottle of Nederburg for 10,000won. There was also a cheaper version available (cant remember the name now), for 6,000won.
c) If you are confused as I am most of the time, and cant find a shopping mall in your area, the following website is a must see:

3) Internet Shopping:
a) Gmarket - http://english.gmarket.co.kr/. This is one of the few websites in Korea that attempts to have some English as well.

Even if you are not keen on Internet shopping, and before hitting the malls, it is worth doing some search here as to get an idea of the cost of a product (yes, foreigners do get ripped off sometimes - just like everywhere else in the world).
a) Itaewon is the place to be, especially if you are very tall, or on the cuddly side.
5) Getting hold of SA products in Korea:
a) SA Spaza shop - anything from Ina Paarman spices to Salt and Vinegar chips and Grandpa's!
b) Ordering some goooood braai meat and/or biltong products:
