Camping in Korea?

Hey all,
I'm flying to Incheon tomorrow to start a teaching job there and was wondering if I should bother bringing my camping gear? It would just be a tent, thermarest, sleeping bag.
Is there much camping in Korea, is it common to camp when climbing?

yes. . . camping is big here and there is camping near most of the climbing. while you can buy what you'd need for the year, if you have decent equipment, bring it! While it's generally possible to get a room near crags, often camping is the best option.
"If you can't do something well, you might as well learn to enjoy doing it poorly." -- from a de-motivational poster, but I find it oddly liberating!

and if you get here and want to buy camping gear, you'll be paying through the nose!
