Time Out says

Mmm Records recently opened a shop dedicated to analog music culture, based on a private collector’s vinyl stash of over 80,000 LPs. Several listening stations are set up where you can check out their affordable LPs and 7-inch records priced from 1,000 won to about 10,000 won. The selection ranges from rare items like Korean golden oldie LPs to mainstream pop. Scattered within the store are turntables and boomboxes from the ‘80s, most of which are for sale. Dig for records indoors, or enjoy one of the best Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches in Seoul and egg coffee on the rooftop with an amazing view that stretches from the Han River to the N Seoul Tower.

Seated on one of Itaewon’s highest points on Woosadan-ro, Mmm Record offers a stunning view that would most likely to make the city's top 5 list. It's comparable to what you'd find on the highrises of Gangnam—except it's much more unobtrusive. On the right side of the rooftop, you’ll be able to see Namsan, Seoul Tower and all the little buildings that make up the foothills of Namsam Mountain. The left side exposes Han River and the concrete jungle of Gangnam which looks rather charming from a distance, especially at night—the day view remains somewhat realistic while the night view transforms into something more enchanting. The rooftop is relatively low-key, with plastic chairs casually laid out and nothing much going on for decoration. And it's not at all a bad thing in the case of this attractive venue, cause your eyes will be mesmerized purely by what the view has to offer anyway.
