Train and domestic train travelI'm currently traveling in China and plan to spend around 10 days in South Korea traveling around. I'm curious as to what the best approach to booking train and domestic flights ahead of time would be. Are there internet resources I can use? I'm going to start in Seoul, so would finding a travel company there to book everything be a better option? Any input is appreciated, thanks!

2English Barota might help you in planning train trips, but you cannot book a ticket on there. If you are not travelling during a peak season, buying tickets close to travel time (say the day before) should be OK. KTX can often be bought on the day of travel.

4We booked everything half an hour before the train. Unless it's a peak travel period, there' sno need to book ahead. Get schedules from the site Ickel has linked above.
The KTX trains are very efficient; they aren't charming if you're a train buff, and they're pretty pricey, but they're fast. The train stations were pretty dazzling though. We didn't bother with domestic flights.
There is a pass you can buy if you have an overseas ticket and passport that allows unlimited travel for so many days.
