I would like some information on the illicit drug scene in South Korea.

I am aware that marijuana use is strictly forbidden here, as in most of Asia. So I don't want to know "Where can I score weed?", as that would be illegal. Nevertheless, as a marijuana afficionado, I am curious. So for purely sociological/cultural research purposes, I would like to hear from those who have been here in South Korea and who know:
Are their places in Seoul where dealers sell openly, to strangers? If so, whereabouts?
Are the cops hip to the scene? I have been told that Korean police are very mild and tame, and that they wouldn't even recognize the smell.
Is there a smoking culture among the youth / local Koreans, or is drug activity primarily a foreigner thing?
