That is exactly why you will only ever make that much.

I'm working on a DVD teaching series I plan to market through a Korean friend (and possibly hire some Koreans to sell on the subway). Total cost of production to me, including marketing costs, is 2,000 won per DVD. Sale price on subway will be 10,000 won (or a little less if sales don't go).

If I sold just 10 per day at 10,000 won, I'd net 80,000 a day. Take that times five days a week, times four weeks a month, and that's another 1.6 million a month.

Add that to the 4 million + I make currently teaching, and it only goes up from there.

And I do hope to sell more than 10 DVDs a day.


You know, you'd make more money -- and would have a lot more fun during the creative process -- if you just made pornos instead.

I'd say the average hagwon teacher's apartment is worth 500,000 per month.

Well, I've got this problem with that, you see.... tons of korean females who want to be a "star" with a foreign guy, but I can't seem to find any foreigners interested in being in the naughty movies with them. Wink

I hear seoultrader's available. Or you could always star in it yourself. That way, you can ensure that your true vision will appear on-screen.

as of right now, the results state that only 60% of english teachers make between 2.0-5.0 That's only 3 out of 5. I'd bet my sack that if I walked into any bar right now, that number would be 9 out of 10. Interesting...so 40% make less than 2.0 or more than 5.0...that's a big pool. Question

And ex-gf was kinda kinky, and we tried that one for fun once... I deleted the tape right away because I looked too fat. It was like -- YUCK! DELETE, DELETE! She laughed her azz off.

Unfortunately, I don't have a movie-star body like Kiwi-boy.

Now there's a guy who looks like a Porn star. Smile
