“You can save so much money teaching in South Korea!” They said. “You can pay off all your student loans and live freely!” They said.
While the Internet has a wealth of travel knowledge, it also has a lot of bullstuff. After some vigilant article- and blog-reading on saving cash in South Korea, I thought I was set. I’ll just pack up my things, teach, and fill my tub with Korean won in no time, I thought. What a surprise I had when I realized, not only are tubs extremely rare in Korean bathrooms, but also saving money in Seoul isn’t so simple.
