Luckily for you, vegetarian fare can be found all over South Korea, though with some difficulty if you don't speak the language. Vegetarian cuisine is historically linked to Buddhism, but a new wave of Korean vegetarianism is growing in popularity. All Buddhist restaurants are vegetarian, and temple stays (http://eng.templestay.com) offer vegetarian meals. Korean tea ceremonies are vegan.
