Expressway = highway=motorway?
National road (connecting major cities/provinces?) = highway=trunk?
Provincial road (connecting towns/cities?) = highway=primary?
City road, if it's a road in a city, could be anything depending on really
what type of road it is...

Do you have any examples, photos etc?

Once you have the highway type to use, then you can add name (with multiple
languages if desired, e.g. name:en for English, name:ko for Korean and
name:ko_rr for revised romanisation of Korean) and ref, as well as other
descriptive tags such as lanes, lighting, maxspeed etc.

Is there something you are trying to capture that isn't covered by this but
not sure how to tag it? Then throw out some more details and we can see what
we can come up with to help :)
