There are Christian churches on almost every corner in Busan but for a Roman Catholic like me it was kind'a hard to look for a Catholic church :) Even this cathedral doesn't look like a church from the outside. It may not look like much from the outside but the stained glass roof that's visible from the inside is very beautiful.
I went here on Christmas day to pray for a bit. I wasn't able to hear a mass, and I don't know if they conduct one in English.
Non-Catholics are always welcome to come inside any Catholic church, just conduct yourself properly ;)

The cathedral is near Namcheon station (green Line 2). I went there by riding bus no.1001 from Busan station, got off at Namcheon bus stop, cross to the other side through the underpass/ subway and out Exit 2. It is about 200m from here, turn left on the street corner and after a few meters, you could see the church parking lot.

Attended the Christmas mass in Korean. Couldn't understand what was said, but the singing and accompanying violins were ethereal.
The church is uniquely asymmetrical, with a full slanted stained glass feature wall. Very calming and peaceful.
