When I was first stationed there in 74-75, my friend and I got our houseboy to make up 2 index cards. On one side was English and the reverse was in Korean. One card asked how to get to the bus station, and the other asked which bus took us vback to Gunsan city.
We would leave the airbase on the local bus, go to the main bus terminal downtown, and jump on any bus that was leaving soon. We would exit the bus in that town, take pictures and meet natives while touring the town. In some towns we turned out to be the first Americans to visit since the war.
We were well treated and then around 4 PM we would flash our cards, and they would accompany us to the bus terminal, and most of the time insist on paying for our tickets back to Gunsan city.
We had a great time and started recommending it only to our good friends whom we thought would be good representatives of the Air Force and Americans in general.
We only needed the cards on the buses because the trains and subways have destinations and directions written in HanGul and English. You might want a card to show your taxi driver that you want to go to the train/subway station.
By the way, I was there in 74-75, 80-82, 85-97, and 01-08. Had a great time, hope you do too.
