1. Get Free WiFi!
As Korea is one of the most well developed IT countries, you can easily find a WiFi sign in any stores, especially in the cafes.
Don’t throw away your receipt because normally the password of WiFi is written on the receipt.
Also, there are commonly used WiFi routers that come with factory-set passwords. People can change the passwords but most of the people keep using given passwords.
Take a look at the list of WiFi hotspots and their passwords.

2. Rent or buy a WiFi Egg
For those who want unlimited access to Wi-Fi networks during their stay, rent a portable and personal WiFi router online and pick it up at the airport and return it afterward.
If you want to buy it instead of renting it, you will need an alien registration card. It will be your ID card in Korea and so it is advised to get your ID proved.
