There used to be one in the COEX mall (which is pretty huge, it is also a convention center), I have no idea whether there still is, but it is pretty easy to get to.

Are you looking to play or to purchase? Seoul has a bunch of boardgame cafe's scattered all over the city (every neighborhood seems to have one). Most are for playing not selling. Their grasp of English is variable. Hoegi Dice Latte is owned/run by an American and has a great selection of games in both languages, his stuff runs more the euro route than the wargame route. If you are looking to purchase, E-Mart Stores have a selection of some of the popular games (Dominion, Catan, Splendor) but the games are in Korean.

A word of advice on this site. It was last updated in December 2014, and there tends to be a fairly high turnover of retail businesses in Seoul and the brick and mortar sites may not be there when you go to find them.
