From http://asiaenglish.visitkorea.or.kr/..._EN_2_1_2.jsp:

Duty Free Allowance

US $600 per capita from the total dutiable value shall be exempted from imposition of duty. Items that are duty free exemptions are: Liquor, cigarettes, and perfume are 1 bottle (not over 1 liter, US $400 or less in foreign currency) of alcoholic beverages, 200 cigarettes (50 cigars or 250 grams of tobacco) and 2 ounces of perfume (about 60㎖), the amounts that exceed duty exemption amount per capita. Also, liquor and cigarettes are only permitted for those over 19 years of age.
So you should be good to grab at least 2 bottles (assuming "we" is at least 2 people who are over 19)
