You can think of as NY. Korea is = drinking fun night, so i bet young guys will love to stay there or go there and have fun. ( ofcourse lot of pretty girls )

He got them thru his college news paper or something. His g/f had the same job too, so i'm guessing you can find it easy(?)

i remember walking out in ITAEWON and going into the local starbucks and coldstone to see foreigners and koreans chatting it up.... my korean co-worker said that some students have to go out and talk to a foreigner (preferably ones that spoke english) as part of their 'english homework'. and i ALWAYS see this happening... i guess it really is easy to get these positions. i'll scout some more and see what else i can find.

Well, I don't think I can pass off as an English teacher when I'm a Korean visiting Korea. I haven't been there in a while - since 2000.

I'm retired and I can tell almost you everything about Korea good and bad. Like I said before Korea has a lot to offer. You can also visit Japan, China & Australia. Use the time wisely.

Also get some college classes. I did finished my Bachelor Degree in Korea and party like is no tomorrow but also visited most of the country and saved money.

The place is what you make of it, once you erase the stereotypes you will be good to go. Plus I know you are getting good money for being there. It beat been in Iraq, right?

having live in korea for 2 years (2005-2006), thought i'd like to add my .02 cents. for those looking for teaching jobs, there are soooo many job opportunities. check out eslcafe.com, which has hundreds of postings. there are also other websites with similar information, can't think of them off the top of my head.

the company i worked for was called CDI, Chungdahm Language Institute. they are one of the biggest "hagwons" (academies) in the country. quite possibly, one of the easiest jobs i've ever had. they have a very structured program, so you just follow whatever curriculumn you have to teach. getting a job there was fairly easy, all you need is a B.A. and speak native English. the pay is pretty good, starting is around 25,000won per hour, about $25. for full-time teaching, its 24 hours/week, and id say actual time at work is closer to 27 hours/week due to prep work. i think their website was jobs.cdi.co.kr

as for cars, i've never seen as many nice cars as i have seen in downtown seoul. i live in a town with a ferrari dealership, and see a good amount of ferraris and maserati's near my area. however, seoul, especially the apgujeong/chungdahm area, has sooo many nice cars. porsche carrera gt, lambos, ferrari, all are daily occurences.

as for Z's and G's, i did see a few, but not too much. there is no Nissan dealership in korea, a few infiniti's. im sure many you are aware of koreans attitude , towards the japanese. however, i did see a collection of older skylines at a gas station, around 10, on one of the main roads between seoul and bundang. nevertheless, korea is a horrible place to own a car. the roads are bumper-to-bumper traffic, and the highways have camera's that take pictures of licenese plates and send tickets to your house. the only way to avoid this is to go faster thatn 140mph (this is what i was told), but that seems pretty retarded to do.
