Buying a Christmas tree in Korea

    Just because your living in Korea doesn't mean that you can't celebrate Christmas! Simply having a Christmas tree in your Korean apartment will make your days much more cheery throughout the holiday season. And since most of us are spending Christmas without our families, decorating will help fight off the holiday blues. Plan a Christmas tree decoration party with your friends. Listening to holiday music and sipping hot coco is the perfect way to bring Christmas to Seoul.
    If your looking for a real Christmas tree this year good luck. It might be too early, but after searching online for two hours I simply gave up. Costco has full sized fake Christmas Trees for around 80,000 won and up. They are beautiful trees and are about six feet tall, but remember that you have to store the monster in your tiny apartment after Christmas or try to sell the thing on G-market which has proven difficult for many foreigners.
    If your only staying in Korea for a year, Daiso is your best option. They have three sizes: minier 2,000 won, mini, 3,000 won, and big mini 5,000 won. You just can't go wrong with a Christmas tree that costs $3! I recommend the mini tree for small surfaces, it fit perfectly on my digital piano. Daiso has tons of ornaments which all cost about 1,000 won for a box. And don't worry there is tinsel, stars, bells, ribbons, stockings, and even Santa Clause costumes. Yes everyone, Santa Clause costumes at Daiso are only $5,000. If your having a holiday party make sure to arrive in style as the big jolly man. If your less gutsy just grab a pair of reindeer antlers or a giant red ribbon for your hair.

i've seen real christmas trees on sale at a nursery just down the road from where i live. that was [충남 아산시 배방읍 북수3리] for reference. the trees weren't huge, but about the height of an average person so certainly impressive compared to a small plastic tree. i never looked at them in person so i don't know about the prices.
that area is somewhat rural, and maybe that's the key. the trees were being grown in the ground of the nursery's property, not in pots, so you're not going to find a place like that in the middle of seoul. i can give more specific directions to anyone interested.
