I am a native teacher with EPIK-Seoul. I have a 100 hour online TESOL cert.

These days I hear that a longer TESOL (minimum 120 hours) with class room time will be required as of Sept 2013.

It seems a bit of a pain to take a 2nd TESOl but if it means keeping my job (getting renewed) I will do it.

Should my current TESOL be enough or is taking a 2nd 120 TESOL with classroom time a good idea????

Advice??? Thanks!!!

You have 1 year of classroom time with EPIK.
You move up a grade level and are fine.
You do not need to upgrade your TESOL cert to stay in Korea.

That's reassuring. I was thinking about the same thing.
