I have flown several times the route FRA - ICN - FRA and domestic routes as well. Only had good experiences on them. Service is great and flight attendants very kind. Anyway, in economy no PTVs on board (on B 747). Safety has improved a lot over the past two years, so I think there is no need for worry in flying them again.

there are no PTV's in Y class, shame though.
their inflight service ain't bad, did get a bit boring since there were no PTV's but you get used to it. their 777 layout is 2-5-2 while their 747 layout is 3-4-3 in Y class.

Regarding the PTV's it depends where you are flying. Some B744's have them installed in Y class, while our newest 777 has the IFE upgrade and personal PTV's in Y also. They are progressively (slowly) being installed across the longhaul fleet.

I flew them five times on CDG-SEL and CDG-ICN return, all of them on 744's in Prestige (Business) Class.
The cabin was very clean every time, the F/A's were friendly and had no problem with cameras (very important point for me ). There were PTV's witha pretty good choice of movies/games, etc..., pity the screen was so small. The meals were either a choice of Western or Korean cuisine, all of which were pretty tasty, but the wine list was..how should I say it ? well, aI'm a FF on AF and French as well, so at least they had some decnet champagne lol...
As a far as I remember they were on time at every occasion I flew them, and check-in was pretty fast.
And now for a little plugging from my KE flights :

'I've heard some pretty bad stuff about them'
Enlighten us, besides some safety issues, wich are supposedly all resolved now, I can not imagine anything bad about them. Perhaps, arriving at your destination, as KE flights are that good that I could only wish that they lasted forever! But if you feel unsecure, you can always join the cattle on UA or NW to Seoul. Anyway, enjoy your stay aboard KE!
