Hi lilmisspepper,

Good to have an early planning. I was more of thinking of going there this mid Dec since my company force us to clear our LEAVEsss... Will start my planning/research in a week time..'For now, Im doing solo.. will try to see anyone interested coz it can be tough since English is not well spoken there..
And if my plan work and the trips is done.. will let u know how the progress... it will be a BLAST...

hi ezy,

Yeah, i agree with you! The language barrier is the only thing i find to be a challenge...My advise, stay near those university areas, like Hongdae, there's large possibility that u can find someone who can speak english... I myself, haven't been to korea, and i consider this as a hell of adventure! From what I've read, Hongdae is the most tourist friendly part of Seoul plus it's home to bars, resto, university studes, english teachers and if your the artsy type u'll enjoy it...:)

I think it would be awesome...Memories of yours to treasure! Good luck and safe journey!:)
