Train from Donghae to Busan?

Hi there,

I will arrive in Donghae with the ferry from Vladivostok, and would like to take a train from there to Busan preferably on the same day. I couldn't find any valid information on trains unfortunately, so if anybody could help me out? Is there a direct train? Do I need to book in advance? And is there any website listing time tables and prices in english?
I just read that there are overnight buses, but I'd prefer to take the train...

Best!

I will have already seen plenty of temples and the like, so am thinking more along the lines of some nice coastal scenery, or perhaps a nice island to explore. Am on a fairly tight budget, so would need somewhere that either works as a day-trip or has cheap accommodation. Is there anywhere…
