Seoul advice other than food

I'm going to be in Seoul next week with my husband and my parents. My parents are Korean and will probably take the helm for showing us around and feeding us, but I'd like some suggestions for things that they wouldn't necessarily now much about, mainly: nightlife and shopping.

Nightlife: My husband and I will probably want to check out the nightlife after my parents have gone to bed. We're in our early thirties, he's Scottish and I'm Korean (I left when I was 3). We like hanging out in pubs and listening to live music. Is there anything like that around Seoul? If not, what else besides super loud, drunken nightclubs as I'm definitely too old for that.
Shopping: I am really interested in Korean makeup. I've heard of Etude, any other brands that I should look out for? Also, for clothes, what is the equivalent of a TopShop/H&M/Forever21? ie Cheap and cheerful.
