    Are you going to s. korea or n. korea? Heard that in the latter the authorities are very strict. You cannot go where you want to go except the place you are living in. I don't know much about s. korea but I think the condition is better there than in the north.

    Many people who go to South Korea love it and stay a long time. However, there are also many horror stories from the Hagwon, where contracts have been randomly breached, teachers not paid, conditions not met, etc. Check the school out carefully. There are blacklist sites like http://www.usingenglish.com/cgi-bin/...mp.cgi?ID=4853 that warn people of some of the schools.
