We spent the night just into Route 8 near a most spectacular Buddhist complex, Yakcheon-sa Temple.
Raining on departure, but stopped after an hour or so. The Route goes through the Jungmun resort area, frantic and a bit tacky but soon after the trail returns to the sea following a small stream for a couple of kilometers through a pretty Eco-Park.

Weird walking through a 5 Star Resort where rooms start at $400 a night
And there was a lot more steps to come
