Tidied up, and expanded. Fixed the transport section to talk about Andong, NOT Seoul. Hopefully the tone is also now a little more in line with that of a traveller (as per Wikitravel's ideology) as opposed to a local tourism bureau. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Snave (talkcontribs) 04:31, 10 October 2010

Hi. It's great that you are beefing up articles. Two minor issues I'd like to highlight, though: the Queen mentioned at the "understand" could be clarified. Since it is the Queen, I presume the one talked about is the current Queen of UK (i.e., Elizabeth II), but that may be not so obvious in the future, when some other queen accedes to the throne. And it's best to avoid using first person pronouns such as "I", "me", as has been done at the "do" section when describing the masks (I have already replaced that with something more "neutral" sounding), as no article at Wikitravel will be completely written by one author in the end, and readers may wonder who that "I" is. You can read more about that no-first-persons policy at here. – Vidimian 14:06, 10 October 2010 (EDT)
Cheers for the proofing. Yeah, I added things pretty quickly so I kinda dropped the ball on that one. If anyone knows the details of the story accompanying the masks, or knows someone who knows it, this article desperately needs it. I recall vague details recited to me by a girl with a Korean parent about a lonely lovesick woodworker carving a bunch but dying before finishing the last one (hence the one lacking a jaw) and then the full set of 12(?) getting reduced to the current number in the Japanese invasion, but this is something I feel really needs a more direct source, even if just paraphrased from a tourist brochure, before addition.Snave 07:16, 23 January 2011 (EST)
