most mid/large sized stationaries I've been to have a decent art section. It doesn't seem like you need something very specific or hard to find so just ask around the city you live.

Homi, in Hongdae, is the best I ever found, and you should be able to find what you need there.

This person included a photo and a bit of a map. It's not hard to find, and has an entrance in the front and back.

Thanks y'all. I've been to the stationary stores and I've never found un-stretched canvas, stretchers boards or gesso. So I will check Homi. Thanks very much :)

Can we get a freaking clue on where you are or how far you are willing to travel?  Hey I have seen some great Art stores in Daegu, Seoul, Pusan, Daejeon.  Heck even in little Gongju.

To not be a complete grump check out if there is a SDot near by you.  I like the sotres and the usually have a good selection of stuff.

Please consider adding some info to your "Personal Text"  Like type of school, visa status, county of origin.  These little bits of info can help people help you.

There is an art store in the Seoul Express Bus Terminal that is probably the largest selection of art items that I have seen in Korea.

I used to live in Jeonju though and there was an art store there that I really liked. Nice people working, really good selection, really cheap hanji paper since they make it in Jeonju.
