We went to Muui-do and climbed last weekend, and it was easy to get there following the description above. We took at taxi from Incheon Airport to the Jamjinnaru ferry terminal, which was about 9,000 won. Split on 3 people, this is a very reasonable alternative to the bus.
If you plan on tenting, you should probably do this at the camping site at Hanagae beach, since the ground by crags is generally very rocky and not flat. The flattest part is the sandy beach, which will suddenly be covered by the tide, so keep this in mind.
Camping at the beach was an extra 5,000 won per tent per night, and we could then use the bathrooms and wash basins that are all over the camping site. If you prefer a roof over your head, you can choose between some nice-looking and some quite old/rotten "minbaks" that are all over the camping area. We didn't try this, so I do not know the quality or prices for those.
A nice source for handy info regarding how to get there is WikiTravel: http://wikitravel.org/en/Muui-do
Here is a blog I found, with some pictures and grades for parts of the crags: http://sanejoa70.tistory.com/m/post/198
All in all this was a very pleasant place to go to! Not crowded at all; nice climbs in the sun; and the possibility of taking a swim in the ocean (preferrably during high tide, so you don't have to walk 2 kilometers first). There are many vertical and slightly overhanging, short routes, which is a pleasant change from the run-out slabs in Seoul.
