This paper aimed to examine what poses difficulties for Korean EFL learners in acquiring English writing skills. With three Korean EFL writers and two EFL teachers, retrospective interviews were used to identify particular needs of Korean EFL writers and the possible disadvantages those writers have in adjusting to English writing styles. Interviews also showed what was behind Korean EFL writers’ problems with English writing. The findings of this study would serve to scaffold more effective EFL writing instruction.
