* Basic salary will be determined based on applicant’s education, qualifications, and teaching experience.(2.55-2.75 million Won per month)

*'Merit' quarterly bonuses will be given at the end of each quarter, depending on a teacher’s performance in the previous three months.

(Excellent Evaluation = 600,000 won EXTRA for that quarter)

* Severance pay (or the equivalent of 1 month's basic salary) will be given after the completion of a one-year contract.

* Single furnished housing that is comfortable and convenient

* 500,000 Won per month will be given as a housing allowance if the teacher does not need furnished housing provided.
