Things to get from korea:

Nuclear bomb
Small pox

Ok the list goes on mainly about weapons but I guess that is the only worthwhile thing to bring since they would be happy to give it to you.

I remember in 2000 when I went to Shanghai there in a mall shop was a display case with a load of ninja stars and knuckle-dusters and the like... I really wish id bought one some of those and posted them to myself rather than wasting my money on one of those foldable scooter things. (alright, I was 16!!!)

One of my [more dense] friends bought some nun-chucks and brought them back in his case, I remember him bricking it as we were going back through customs because he thought he was going to get searched. muahahaha. laugh at Mark, point and laugh.

I accidently hit a wall where there was a ninja star hanging ontop, let's just say the tip fell on my forehead and didn't break the skin. It was kind of funny because it just stood up with the tip touching the forehead and I didn't want to move because I thought it would be worse.

Bring back the latest electronic gadget from Samsung, LG, Daewoo or Hyundai. Perhaps an internet refrigerator? Or maybe a car from the latter?

Then realize that the US operates on a different mains voltage from the rest of the world.

well my dad suggested chopsticks, I like that idea. they probably have like, cell phones in them by now.

how much would it cost to mail things to youself back in the US? I don't expect I'll need to, but if there is something really cool I will simply die without, It'd be nice to know...
