My husband and I were lucky enough to be staying with family when we were visiting South Korea so they took us out to the east coast to spend sometime at Seoraksan National Park. It was really a spectacular experience. I imagine it would be just a beautiful at other times of the year for different reasons. there is a little something for everyone at the park too. One day we did a pretty grueling hike up a river bed. When the terrain got steeper, so did the trail- there we no switchbacks, so be prepared for a hard uphill and downhill. It is worth it though, for the amazing views that you can get. If you aren't into, or aren't able, to hike, there is also a cable car up to one of the peaks in a different part of the park. This also gave stunning views up and down a river valley. Near there is a large temple complex which is also fun to explore. I highly recommend this area of Korea if you can make it on a trip. It gives you a completely different look at the country than if you just stay in Seoul.
