As there has been increasing single households, ones that are with 8L or 10L of dehumidifying capacity (relatively small) are being popular. You can get those dehumidifiers from Hi-Mart, Samsung Digital Plaza, or LG Best Shop. However, the dehumidifiers in Samsung Digital Plaza and LG Best Shop are from their own brands so if you want to compare and contrast with various kinds of dehumidifiers, I recommend you to visit Hi-Mart where has many kinds of different brands. Or, of course, you can always online shop if you are not in hurry.
