GS Home Shopping(GSHS) is one of the largest TV home shopping companies in the world as well as the leading multimedia retailer in Korea, providing shopping services not only via TV, internet, and shopping catalogs but also through new media platforms, including digital cable TV, IPTV (internet protocol television), smartphones, and tablet PCs.

GSHS is always focused on enabling our customers to make the best shopping choices. With the advent of the internet, consumers now have access to an abundance of information. However, the sheer volume of available information can be overwhelming. Some consumers find it difficult to determine what the best deals are and where to find them. Based on our extensive experience operating diverse online retail platforms, GSHS helps customers make the smartest shopping decisions by providing first-rate products and honest information.
GSHS works hard to create a shopping environment that is convenient and accessible whenever and wherever. The advent of the internet and the widespread use of smartphones and tablet PCs are bringing dramatic changes to the online retail environment.
