Concerning the F-4 visa, I was told by a recruiter that "Often employers offer very different work to someone on this visa and airfares to Korea are not paid and housing not provided." I am just wondering if this is true?


I don't really want to go to Korea on an E-2 visa because of all the stipulations associated with it.

Koreans don't get the "modelling bonus" of being a foreigner. As such, even with an E2 visa you would be hard pressed to get the same pay and perks as a caucasian.

If you can speak English and Korean fluently, you can get a job at a high end English school in Seoul and make thick cash, but being a Korean who speaks only English would put you in the low end of the pay scale.

well, thanks for the replies so far...

captain...my korean pretty much sucks (i can swear with the best though)...but having lived and gone to university in Korea, I was able to work part time (illegally, of course Laughing ) and tutor privately. I would like to do that again, but i would like the free apartment and free ticket. so that's why hagwons look attractive.


kimchee...yea, i've had other friends that have worked at hagwons and got paid the same and sometimes more than the "foreign" teacher. i just have to find this hagwon now......
