Good luck. A restaurant in the town where I went to college offered a Master and PhD in beer for drinking all in a long list of beer from all around the world (great marketing ploy). I can't recall drinking a good one from Korea.

Stay away from 33 if they have it.
I know. Korea doesn't have too many good beers. On my way back I will be some time in the Netherlands and Germany, much better.

Up until 2014 their liquor laws discouraged small breweries. That has changed and evidently some are popping up now. Wikipedia lists several. If you are in Seoul this one might be interesting:

I will be in Seoul for a few days. Love that country, going there for the 8th time. Seoul is nice.

Now in London.
Fun, but I can’t drink much English beer. They’re weak, and the unfermented yeasts bother my stomach. But they have great gin!

I've enjoyed a few Samuel Smith ales. Looking to try their Yorkshire Stingo if I can find it.

Just had a double espresso. $12.50 Seoul has become very expensive. Was here the first time in 1995 and 8 times since then, became more expensive every year.
