Proper attention should be paid to being gracious and courteous in the Korean way. Koreans bow to show respect upon introduction, take their shoes off when entering the homes of others, and show extreme graciousness to the elderly. You should be prepared to do the same.

Koreans have a strong sense of national pride and may take offense to anything they sense might be a slight encroachment on that, so err on the side of caution and stick to sunnier conversation topics. There are lots of other ins and outs regarding etiquette in Korea, so read up before you go.
