Better find a track... public roads are heavily monitored in Korea. It's the most networked and wired country in the world, and so are the roads.

There is a 'racing park' in Taebaek city (http://www.racingpark.co.kr/use/program.asp) . I think it costs about KRW 110,000 (USD 100) to buy a pass. Never had a chance to drive there myself... but I hear it's the best track that is publicly available.

There is also the Korea International Circuit in Junnam Province, but it won't be completed until mid 2010.
I heard about the Junnam Circuit, hopefully I'll find a way to get on it. I think they are closing the Everland circuit in 2010 and the Ansan track is closed.

The camera's are a PIA, I've got 2 tickets already. They were only 30k won, not too painful. That's why I need to find a road course somewhere.

I've thought about trying to get into the driver testing course at night. Its pretty much an autocross setup.
