Time Out says

Although the words Chaeg Bang can be directly translated in Korean as bookstore, the word “musa” has several meanings. “We wanted it to mean ‘safely,’ but many people took it to mean ‘warrior’ instead,” explained owner Yozoh, who welcomes both meanings of the word for his store that sells independently published books, foreign magazines and postcards. In addition to the products they sell, Chaeg Bang Musa is also loved for its hair salon storefront, which Yozoh decided to keep when the bookstore moved in.
