Any bookstores that sell English language books in Busan?

Are there any bookstores in Busan that sell books in English?  I'd like to pick up some reading material, but I have no idea if there are any international bookstores in Busan.

I have been looking for Moleskine journals in a lot of bookstores in Korea. I was told to check Kyobo in Busan. Does anyone know for sure that I can find one there?

I can't say for sure but I'd be surprised if you couldn't find them there.

Aside from Kyobo in Seomyeon, the Lotte department store in Nampodong also has a bookstore with a good English book selection.

I forgot the name of the bookstore, but I think there's one near Seomyeon station (not Kyobo) that has a good selection of English books in their basement. I've been there once and I thought their English section of books was pretty good.

I think you're talking about YK Bookstore. It's just outside of exit 9.

Check out http://www.whatthebook.com/index.html
They sell English books and ship all over Korea. Shipping takes maybe a week at max.
