If you like hiking take a look at Danyang. We were there in June and loved the 3 national parks in the area. The town has a nice market, especially the food stalls and a beautiful walk by the river.

Another possibility would be Andong to see the Hahoe Folk Village.

Os even Suwon to see the fortress and walk along the old walls.

What about skip gwangju? To be honest, gwangju is not attractive for travelers. And Distance between gwangju and daegu is so far.

Should consider Gyeongju...ruined capital of the Shilla around a nice lake. On the route from Busan through Daegu to Seoul.

And even if templed out...there is the Haeinsa near Daegu. It has the Tripitika Koreana, a Buddhist canon and the 81,000 wooden print blocks with which it was printed. Still a working temple. Fascinating. Nice hike.

6 days isn't much time. Seoul and one other city will make you avoid rushing.

If you wish to see beaches, Busan is all right.

Or I recommend one among Gapyeong, Danyang, Suncheon, Sokcho, Yeosu and Gyeongju.
