I will start with my first trip to Seoul (not for plastic surgery but vacation at the time). I went to: 

Sindang-dong for their Rice cakes

Eungam-dong for Pork and Potato soup

Majang meat market for Korean BBQ

Sillim-dong for Sundae (Sausage with noodles inside them)

 

 

 

 

 

Will be going to Korea this July again, very excited la. What else to try and where to get the best real, authetic Korean food in Seoul? LaughKiss

D: I don't think these are good for eating after surgery! Do you know of any delicious foods that you can have after surgery... not that gross protein shake stuff.

You can probably eat more traditional healthy foods like soups and rice. Like soondubu or something.

Is Korean food naturally spicy in general?  I don't have very many Korean restaurants near me, so I have never had the food before

There is usually some form of hot pepper in Korean food. I thought this link might be helpful if you're looking for non-spicy Korean food. 

.....-to-try/ 

I live near a very Korean neighborhood in Canada. I don't know how the spiciness level compares to Korea but I find that if you can handle a bit of spice, the food shouldn't be too spicy.

Is it not possible to prepare a usual spicy food non spiced?

I think the better option is to tell the staff how much spice you can handle and maybe they can adjust it to your taste. I'm not too sure though.
