Any other business-related activities will require a visa. It is advisable to carry with you a copy of your itinerary as you enter South Korea as immigration may request information about your stay.
The Bulguksa Temple is located in the Gyeongju National Park, south-east of the city of Gyeongju, towards the south of South Korea. The closest major international airport to Bulguksa Temple is Busan’s Gimpo International Airport, and the smaller Ulsan Airport (USN) is also nearby. It takes about 1h to reach the Bulguska Temple from either airport if you take an express bus. You can then find accommodation in Gyeongju.
Seoul is the best place from which to visit the Demilitarized Zone (or DMZ) between North and South Korea. The only way to be granted access to the DMZ is to join a tour and most tours start from Seoul. Tours are separated between half day and full day tours and take you through different sights of the DMZ including the Joint Security Area (JSA) and the Freedom Bridge. You will need to book your tour to the DMZ 2 to 3 days before you intend to go as a passport check is first required.
Jeju Island’s Jeju International Airport (CJU) is one of the biggest airports in South Korea. While there are no direct flights to Jeju Island from Australia, you can find flights from stopover locations such as Bangkok, Hong Kong, or Shanghai. Alternatively, you can of course find domestic flights to Jeju from Seoul or Busan. Flying to the island is the most efficient as ferries from the closest mainland port, Wando, take about 4 to 5h.

Cons: "There was on flight attendance which I assume new. She was not able to manage to check with her colleagues whether there was still a food which I requested before giving me the answer.

Pros: "Everything was good"

Pros: "To be honest I had a pretty bad flight because my allergies exploded during the entire flight - constant sneezing, runny nose, you name it. However, the attentiveness of the crew really made up for it. The cabin was decorated with tiny wreathes (so cute!), and the pillow/blanket was very comfortable/warm for an Economy seat. Although I did not use it as much, the entertainment seemed top-notch. And the crew-- they noticed that I was not feeling well, and offered me peppermint tea and snacks that did sooth things a bit (you can request for snack/beverage refills anytime!). I loved that they gave out black socks to the passengers too (I prefer taking my shoes off during the flight, so the socks added warmth & prevented my own socks from getting dirty). All in all, it was one of the best-serviced long flights I had, not to mention probably the most affordable price I paid for my annual trip to Korea (from LA)."

Cons: "They ran out of diet drinks."

Pros: "I loved the movie selection and the food options."
Cons: "The woman behind me kept insisting that I keep my chair in the upright position. With two crying babies on the plane, I was trying to relax and sleep as much as possible on the 12.5 hr flight. What bothered me even more is that when the woman asked the flight attendant to tell me to put my seat up, the flight attendant complied instead of telling the woman it was my seat to do as I wished. Why make the seats recline if they are going to bother the people behind? Why tell me to put my seat up if it was not a requirement for all (ie during take off or landing)? I did not appreciate this and it made my flight extremely uncomfortable."

Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "Business class on this short haul flight was fantastic, but sadly I don’t think this is the normal route it will take as I think they were testing it. If you can get one of these on long haul they are a very nice plane, individual compartments and some very modern touches. Windows darken without blinds, loads of space in your compartment and food was good even as just a snack."
Cons: "I can’t think of anything I didn’t like and if Thai Air have these rolling out for long haul I’ll definitely look at them against"

Pros: "Superb crew and excellent service."

No instructions for remediation for flight cancellation only tell customer to get checked in luggage bag and go home. No initiative to handle the incident. We waited for 2 hours at the counter for explanation and information for re-arrangement for the flight. Really disappointed with this flight."
Pros: "Boarding was orderly and efficient, the polar opposite of the mad rush that can sometimes happen when cabin crew don't take charge of the boarding order. Crew were courteous and multilingual. Leg room felt a bit better than average for an international flight. Food was very tasty. The inflight entertainment selection and screen quality was excellent."
Cons: "They managed to run out of the Western breakfast option (which I did not want anyway, but many British tourists had to make do with yoghurt and fruit due to unfamiliarity with congee). The entertainment system is controlled by touchscreen only. An elegant solution that is simple to keep clean, but you get tired of holding your arm up at eye level."

Cons: "A short flight with just snacks. Seems downgraded the international flight standard."
Pros: "Movie selection was fantastic!"
Cons: "When we booked we asked for a child's meal and we advised of allergies. However I don't see why we would have to ask as we booked a child's seat and you have to provide the age which she is 4. When onboard from SYD/HKG and HKG/LONDON, NO meal was available for our child except for what everyone else was eating. She is anaphylaxis to shellfish, she was given shrimp!!!!! I am sure if she was given a child's meal she would not have got this. We were then told we have to advise the airline 12 hours before we fly that we want a child's meal. I am sorry but when travelling we should not have to do this and nor have we ever had to do it on any other airline. Poor poor poor!!!!"

Cons: "The service is kinda slow to respond"
Cons: "On the way to Newark was terrible because of the food. Both dinner and breakfast half of my row were served last compare to everyone else sitting before us or after us. The rice dishes were gone both times when the food got to me. I can understand if it was just one meal, but it was disappointing that I wasn't able to eat rice during the whole 15 hours of trip. It would also be understandable if the row right before me wasn't served 20 mins prior to us, and the row right after me wasn't served 15 mins before us. I just couldn't understand how it was arranged. Maybe I should've ask for service right before they start serving meal."

Cons: "The extra bag fee is insanely high, $175."
Cons: "PAL is literally never on time. The terminal process was absurd - 300 person line to check in and print a boarding pass. Then it was 1hr late to boars and then >90 mins waiting on the tarmac. Just a terrible on-time performance and inconvenient process that is typical of PAL"
Pros: "The plane itself was very clean and well maintained"
Cons: "Staff was rude to customers, with poor responses and a lack of customer service skills. After a long delay of over two hours, you would have thought they would've have been more understanding and accomadating. They also displayed poor communication through all stages of the flight."
Pros: "No and No"
Cons: "Was in business class and service is poor. Food was mediocre and service was not at par as other business class airlines. Toilet is dirty most times and lacking toiletries. Very unsanitary. Only thing good is all service staff always smile but lack proper and on time service training."

Pros: "Crew were pleasant and attentive and found was simple but OK, with a choice."
Cons: "Legroom appalling. For anyone 6ft Plus it was a struggle and uncomfortable for the 3hr flight. Holding for 25 minutes after landing until parking spot became available didn’t help."

Cons: "More new release movies would have been good."
Pros: "Gave me food after they had stop serving since I slept through the whole flight. Very nice about it."
Pros: "Great service, comfortable aircraft, and pleasant staff. Would use them again!"
Cons: "Wish they would have warned us that we would be on lock down in the terminal at Manila when we went through security early. Cause we had to wait by the gate for 6 hours in a terminal that didn't have much else. Upstairs of Terminal 2 had no accommodations or restaurants/cafes. Just food stands. Still not bad though, would have been a nice warning though."

Pros: "Nice and kind crew"
Cons: "small seats okay food on mobile WiFi entertainment"
Pros: "most all the touchdowns are seamless no bouncy on the tarmac. the only thing a bit un nerving is the wind blowing on landing and the rear of the plane swings from side to side"

Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "The seats on Philippines airlines are too narrow."
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "There was too much delay in the going flight"
Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous at times."
Cons: "The poor service at the Sydney airport. Not having my special meal and not being flexible enough onboard to compensate or resolve the situation. (I mean, why not have extra vegetarian options available; and beef being the only option is unacceptable for so many reasons, including that there are some religions that don't allow beef.) Lack of wifi and entertainment for an 8 hour flight is ridiculous."
Pros: "Very interesting experience at Manila airport. Their transfer system needs refining and modernising. It was a very difficult and harf to understand process"
Pros: "HNL to MNL - cost me 10hrs of my precious time as the plane was diverted to Clatk International Airport. MNL to SING - flight was delayed for an hour. SING to MNL - status update from PAL indicated our flight was changed from 10:30 to 11:30 therefore my connecting flight to HNL as well as arrival time has also changed. VERY POOR PAL AIRPORT FACILITY FOR HAVJNG ONLY ONE WORKING RESTROOM FOR THE WHOLE TERMINAL! With flights getting delayed people are anxious and frustrated. There are no place to relaxed and calm down. Staff are everywhere standing and glaring so as the other passenger. Worst airport ever!"
Cons: "See above!"
Cons: "Food was awful and no entertainment"
