You should really go to Namsan tower for the view of the city it’s best at night, see the cherry blossoms in the right season, hang around Han river and eat chicken there, have fun at the pc bangs and the big malls anyway there is anything you want there ! And the food is amazing !! Try as much as you can to eat local food, you won’t be disappointed!
