Where to buy PC power cord in Korea

Does anyone living in Korea know where I can buy Schuko to IEC-60320 cords for my computers? I forgot to buy the cords in America even though I kept on reminding myself to buy it. Will I have to find a online retailer that ships internationally? Or will I have to search around in the streets of Seoul to find someone in the streets selling them? I know where to get adapters but I know that buying an actual cord is better since adapters can fail more easily than the cord itself. I know that there is a giant building dedicated to selling electronics in Downtown but I am not sure if they have the cord since I have been there multiple times but I never saw a floor for electronic components.

Hi there

Can't remember if S.Korea uses 220 V or not but if it uses European system these should work.

Convert Schuko Plug Male to IEC 60320 C5 Connector Female 2.5 Amp 250 Volt - Our Item #: 1603, Category: Euro Grounded Block Style Plug Adapters : StayOnline

I know you don't like adapters but these work very well indeed - so I don't think you need worry on that score -- actually the Mains itself in the USA is a lot more unreliable than one would expect from a ist world country -- due a lot though to huge areas for transmission lines, unpredictable and severe climate in parts causing havoc with the transmission lines-- and having that rather inefficient 110 V domestic AC voltage (Ever tried to boil a kettle in USA for a cup of tea !! -- you need a wacking 30 Amp circuit because of the lower voltage (Ohm's law !!!). Airco also needs much larger amperages than Europe. (P in Watts = I * V where I in amps and V in Volts -- so a 3KW kettle in the USA would need 3000/110 = approx. 30 AMPS !!!!. Nice thick fuse. !!!! Next time you are in the USA ask yourself why you don't see many electric kettles around !!.

Cheers

The only problem is that this website and the same with most others is that the shipping is too expensive. This is why I am trying to find one that is local to Korea.

You mean something like Yellow Pages, right? There are phone books but I am not sure what to look for. After my computer gets here on Monday, (Korea Time) I will go to a place in the city that has many floors dedicated for individual store owners to sell electronics and see if they have a cord. If they have none, I will try the phone book. Also, another problem about using adapters is that grounded adapters are very rare here.
