"what I really wanted"! - thats my trip for me..
For me, i didnt even know a hard day during my 12 day trip. Maybe coz i really wanted to do it. I went around Seoul, Gangwon-do, Gyeongju, Busan. I guess you could see more than this because I met over with some friends that ate up like 3 days of my iti.

Ya, english could be a problem. try to know some survival words like where, bus, train, thanks you, etc. words that you think you will use everyday. I found this sooooo useful. Coz when you go out of seoul a day without meeting an english speaker can be usual. There are also provinces wherein even their tourist info centers can hardly speak basic english. I got a bit lost for 3 times but i easily coped coz of these words!

Iti depends on what you want to do. Must see this site
