If you are travelling to South Korea for more than 2 days, you can consider purchasing a Korea prepaid data SIM card (1GB data) that is valid for 30 days, for 25,500 KRW (approximately S$32) instead of paying about S$18-22 daily to the local telcos (using StarHub as an example) for unlimited data usage in Korea.
