Everything Frugal Living South Korea
A decade ago, it was pretty easy to put away a couple thousand USD every month from teaching English in Korea. This usually involved a combination of the regular day-job and then some private teaching at night or on weekends. These days though, the cost of living has increased significantly while salaries have remained stagnant. Private teaching gigs are fewer than they once were and not many of them pay the 50,000 Won an hour that they used to. If you can save $1000 USD per month teaching English in South Korea, you’ll be doing well.
