There's a truck that's just outside the Sports Complex station on Line 2 which sells mangoes.

Never been to 'every Homeplus' but the three that I have been to in various cities didn't have them.

Granted, neither have I.  But, I do see them pretty regularly.

You can order them, as well.

At 8 bucks for 2 mangoes, I'd never buy a fresh mango in Korea. I usually get frozen mangoes and make mango shakes out of them.

If you are really looking for fresh mangoes and can't find them in emart or any other supermarket, then you can try Hyehwa station on Sundays around lunch time. There is a Filipino market that opens up for a few hours every Sunday near the Catholic church there.

It's one of my favorite fruit!

Mangoes sold in Korea are over priced and taste like crap.   >:(
