Transit Visa for South Korea

Hello, I have booked my trip to Vietnam for March 2012. The flight stops in South Korea for a 1.5 hours on the way to Vietnam and the return ticket will have an 8 hour stop. Do I need a visa for South Korea? I already got my approval letter and do you know if I can get a visa-on-arrival for Korea? I'm a US citizen by the way.

Hi Jill

No you do not, even if you were to stay in S. Korea for 30 days or less, US citizens do not require a visa, and definitely not a transit visa, here's the S. Korean Embassy website:
