If you're looking to get a little closer to this year's Winter Olympic action in South Korea, it's still possible.

A $922 flight on Korean Air departs at 12:10am in the wee hours of Sunday and lands in Seoul at 6:10am on Monday morning, just in time for breakfast. On the way back, you'll leave at 8:05pm on Sunday the 18th and arrive in San Francisco at 1:30pm on the same day. Both flights are nonstop; and, the flight time from California to South Korea is just over 13 hours, and the return flight is approximately 10 hours.
