Firstly I’d recommend getting a Korean published dictionary as opposed to one made by an American/UK/English speaking publisher. I have a Collins mini English-Korean dictionary, and while I wasn’t expecting it to be brilliant in the first place, I was still rather disappointed, it’s very very limited and not very good…
I use Dong-A’s Metro English-Korean Korean-English Dictionary which I like, although I’m sure there is other great ones out there ^-^ However — looking on the net my dictionary appears rather expensive O.o I got mine in Korea for about 20,000 won but it seems to be $40+ on the net. But I believe Dong-A is a quality brand.
If you’ve got any Korean bookstores nearby it’s definitely worth checking them out and asking the shopkeeper their advice :)
