Money card.

Hi I'm from the UK. I'm hoping to visit Korea next year and was wondering if there was a travel card I could get that I can purchase korean won onto? I don't feel to comfortable keeping too much cash on me. I just simply would like to buy things chip and pin/contacless without needing to pay a transaction fee everytime. Is there a card that can do this? I would be travelling across all of South Korean not just Seoul.
