Im going to visit South Korea next week. It's my first time to go there so I'd like to know about the money exchange. Where is the best place for currency exchange? (In Seoul) Any suggestion about it?
Thank you in advance,
Piraya.

Incheon Airport's lower level has several very good exchange facilities. If you plan on later using an ATM, just be aware that Korean ATM's only have a numeric keyboard.

Firstly shop the banks, but i think the currency will be generally same. ;)
(do not change your money at the shop. the rate will be poor)

I strongly suggest that you don`t exchange your cash from the departing airport or in Incheon Airport. Although if you`re departing from the States it`s more worth it to exchange into Korean Won then to exchange your dollars in Incheon Airport. Just exchange enough for the transportation to the city `n for hotel and food expenses for the day.
