An embassy is the official diplomatic representation of one country in another country. It is usually located in the capital city of the host country and serves as the headquarters for government officials representing their home country. Embassies work to build and maintain political, economic, and cultural relationships between their home country and the host country. They also provide various services to citizens of their home country who are living, working, or traveling in the host country.

A high commission is similar to an embassy but is specifically used to denote the diplomatic mission between Commonwealth nations. High commissions represent their home countries in other Commonwealth countries and generally provide the same services as embassies. The head of a high commission is known as the high commissioner.

A consulate is a smaller diplomatic mission that operates separately from an embassy. Consulates are typically located in major cities outside of the capital and provide a range of consular services, including assistance to citizens of the home country who are living, working, or traveling in the host country. The head of a consulate is known as the consul or consul-general.

American Embassies, high commissions, and consulates can provide assistance to citizens in emergency situations, such as natural disasters, civil unrest, or personal crises. While they cannot provide financial assistance or transportation to safety, they can help coordinate efforts with local authorities and provide guidance on the best course of action for citizens in need.

If American citizen is arrested or detained in a South Korea, the embassy, high commission, or consulate can provide assistance by offering information on local legal procedures, providing a list of local attorneys, and ensuring that the citizen is treated fairly and in accordance with local laws.

However, they cannot intervene in the legal process, secure the release of an imprisoned citizen, or provide legal advice.

In the event that a citizen of United States loses their passport while in South Korea, the embassy, high commission, or consulate can help by issuing an emergency travel document, which allows the citizen to continue their journey and return to back to United States. The process for obtaining an emergency travel document varies depending on the specific situation.
