Feb will be bitter cold. Come with warm woolen clothes with long johns especially since you are from the tropics. The weather will be dry and chilly winds can easily plummet temps down to minus 10 at night. Snow pretty rare but not uncommon in Seoul.

As long as you're appropriately dressed for the weather you'll be fine. Don't forget gloves and something to cover your head and ears, they will mean a lot!

The only issue with shopping for clothes is it can be time consuming to fit some clothes because you need to remove the layers of clothing! :)

I'd say you need at least two layers for your legs and maybe 3 layers on top. Good luck! :)

I suggest you wear shoes with good grips. Snow on the sidewalks can be slippery.

Seoul has very good heating system indoors and in the subways. In fact i felt steaming hot inside the trains so dress in layers are the way to go.

Enjoy!
