In case of the former, it will cost about 90,000 Korean Won (or about 90 USD), depending on the traffic condition. You don't have to give gratuities to taxi drivers (and in restaurants) in Korea. In case of deluxe taxi, the fare is considerably more expensive. So, please be advised if you want to use the deluxe taxi service.

While most taxi drivers may not be fluent in English, they can connect you to a English translator by phone. Just look for a banner saying "Free Interpretation" on the side window of taxi cab.

Also, you may want to print out this page and show it to a taxi driver, who will then know where you are headed.
