This Plastic Surgery Clinic is usually quite busy, with people coming in and asking questions about what can be done to make them look better, but these days it is nearly empty.
In the last few weeks, it has seen a drop of about 80 per cent in the number of customers, especially those from China and other countries.
"Even a few months ago, there were lots of people in the streets here with bandages over their faces in places like coffee shops," said the clinic's beauty director Byun Hae-kyung.
"But these days, it’s difficult to see that. I think you can see how the number of foreigners have dropped drastically at airports too. I don’t think there is much people movement these days."
There are hundreds of plastic surgery clinics around the area - referred to as the beauty belt of Gangnam - but the streets are quite empty these days.
Not only are foreigners not coming for facial surgery, they are not coming at all.
According to the Korea Tourism Organisation, about 85,000 foreign tourists have cancelled trips to South Korea in the first 10 days of June. That number is expected to rise until the government is able to contain the MERS virus.
Shops in the hip shopping area of Garosugil in Gangnam are feeling the impact. "We used to get an average of about 30 to 40 foreigners every day," said Cho Yong-ju, manager of Spello, which specialises in hand-made shoes for men.
"But after MERS, it has dropped drastically to about four to five people. It would be alright if we are able to contain this, but if we see more cases, like secondary and tertiary cases, then this could be prolonged."
But despite the outbreak of the deadly virus, there were some people who said they were not worried.
"It is still not very serious right now," said a tourist from Hong Kong. "We already booked the tickets and booked the hotel a long time ago, so we don't want to cancel. So we just came here."
"I think we’re fine," added a woman who was working as an English teacher in the country. "The virus is just like that, it happens in life, and it’s pretty much contained. No one knows how it’s contracted anyway and it’s not airborne, so I don’t know what the point of the mask is."
A lot of people have been asking whether it's safe to come to Korea now. What I can tell you is it's less serious than you think. :-)
