700 Won buys you a ride on the subway
700 Won buys you a can of soda
1000 Won buys you a hot dog on a stick
3000 Won buys you a large coffee at Starbucks
5000 Won buys you a meal in one of the many fastfood restaurants
If it's your first time to Seoul you might like to visit Insa Dong, Kyongbokkung Palace and perhaps one of the many department stores (most popular one is Lotte in Myong Dong).
Stay away from Itaewon, unless you feel home sick.

After going twice a year to Seoul for the last five years, IMHO the best place for electronics is Yongsan on the KNR (not subway) line.
Also check out Technomart at Kyangbong (green line), prices are usually cheaper than Europe.
But with the low USD, dunno for you guys.
Itaewon is nice but a rip-off for prices as it is the main tourist area.

If you can swing it, try and do a trip to the DMZ. You may need to book in advance, but I'm sure you can get a large enough group of your crew together to do a "special tour" if they aren't offering a scheduled one on the day you are there.
