Where to buy a rope in Busan

I am going to need to buy a rope soon and I'm just wondering if any of you have had good (or bad) experiences with certain shops...

mountain bank is one of the best gear shops in korea. i like it more than most of our shops here in seoul even. look them up under gyms in busan to get directions. the gym sucks, but the gear shop is nice.

Mountain Bank is a great store, with a massive selection and knowledgable staff, but their rope prices are pretty high. I bought an Edelweiss 60m 10.3 with Mack at a shop not too far from Mountain bank called....help me out here Mack! We bought a pair of ropes for 200,000 a piece. Without the two rope purchase discount they would have been 225,000. The cheapest we found at Mountain Bank was a Tendon 60m, for 260,000.

Thanks for the warning Charles. Is it only their rope prices that are high or prices in general? (I am also looking to buy a pack and some slings.) Hope Mack can fill in the gaps here.
