    Perhaps your best bet is to look at this site. That link should take you right to the page showing the locations of their two stores - one in the Susaek area of western Seoul and the other in Ilsan (northwest extremity of the #3 subway line). The advantage here is that you can check out the prices beforehand. My experience is that online prices are basically the same as at traditional stores, even when you look at a variety of places.

    Do you mind if i ask where are you from? Most probably badminton stuffs in your countries are much more easier and cheaper you can find than in Korea:D

    I can't imagine the stores in Maryland teeming with badminton stuff. Considering the prices here, though, you might get some better deals within the U.S. by mail order. I know that there is a place in Toronto with lower prices on Victor racquets, even with the exchange rate and the insane sales taxes.

    Sure, if you want to find physical stores, you need different links from the websites I linked to in the other thread. Each company has a list of dealers (i.e. Yonex and Li-Ning). There are 6 more company sites linked to here, each of which should have a list of stores.

    There are several other online sites, too. My earlier point was that finding more stores isn't likely going to get you better prices or better selection. Each store is small and will have to order anything but the most common items. But fair enough, racquets are one thing the smaller stores are more likely to have a selection of. Clothing and shuttles are more the crap-shoot case.
