      Hi All,

      For my forthcoming trip to S. Korea, I plan to take buses for following route:
      Seoul-Sokcho- Pohang/Gyeongju-Busan-Seoul

      I can easily google on which bus terminals, price, timetable, etc. but do I need to book in advance to have a guaranteed seat? If I go straight to the bus terminal and pay there on the date of travel, is there a risk that the places are sold out? And vice-versa: if I should reserve in advance, is there any way to do so, online in English in a secure way...

      I plan my trip for the second half of April.
