What Are Apartments Like in South Korea?

One of the many benefits of our Teach in South Korea program is that you are provided a FREE furnished apartment during your year in Korea. Your apartment will include all the basic necessities like a bed, table and chairs, gas stove, fridge, washing machine, dresser, microwave and TV set. You will be responsible for paying your utilities, including internet, so once you arrive, you can ask your co-teacher to help set that up. Some housing in Korea will include heated floors for those cold winter nights, and you may even have the luxury of a dryer but no matter what, you’ll have the chance to make it your cozy home-away-from-home.

Our current teachers in South Korea recently moved into their apartments so here’s a glimpse of what you can expect!

    Maybe I’m just unlucky but I’ve been in 2 different apartments and they’ve both been filthy! To the point where I’m considering just leaving Korea, saving up 10K then trying the teaching thing again next year.
