Hello Amy, Currently the regulations and requirements to enter South Korea as a tourist is much more lenient than ever. As a US citizen, you are not required to apply for visa. Instead you will have to apply for K-ETA at least 72 hours before your departure ( https://www.k-eta.go.kr/portal/apply/index.do). (https://www.k-eta.go.kr/portal/apply/index.do) There is no longer quarantine in Korea regardless of vaccination status. So you will not need to show them your vaccine records. However you are still required to show them your negative test result. You will either have to take a PCR test (48 hours before your flight) or an Antigen test (24 hours before your flight) at a clinic. Have your negative test result document when you are boarding and arriving in Korea.
