I'm getting ready to start looking for a job in Korea and am thinking about where. I really want a warm climate. I've lived in cold and colder my whole life and it's something I want to experience. A large city is also a must. Is there any other good city besides Busan? I want to live somewhere with a Western community, good public transportation, a night life and things to do on the weekends. Any recommendations?

Also, what times do places typically close in Korea? I'm currently living in Europe and was shocked (and so annoyed) that everything closes at 6pm during the week and is closed on Sundays. What are the general business hours in Korea?

Pretty much everywhere is cold here in the winter - Busan can be a little warmer. There are 24/7 conveneience stores here and bars are flexible about when they close. Most cities look pretty similar and there are quite a few large ones - 1 million +

What he^ said. Busan gets frigid during the winter. It doesn't snow here (heavy), but it sure does get cold.
