Shopping Genius/ annoyance

One thing that they do here in Korea often is place what you want really far away and you have to walk through large shopping areas to get to it.  For example, there is a movie theatre in Sincheon that I go to.  If you take the escalators, they are not stacked on top of one another like usual. You go up one flight, walk through all the clothing shops to the other side where you go up the next one and so on.  Its incredibly annoying but I can see why they did it.

I've also seen a large department store where most of the escalators all go up and it took me forever to find one that went down...

Another thing they do is hire people (usually hot girls) to stand outside of store and try to lure you in. They usually are bilingual or trilingual enough to get all the tourists. They will dance or sing, and hold free samples or free products you can get--only if you buy something.
