    I lived in Korea for 2 years as an English teacher (2017-2019) and made around $1600 a month after taxes. Back in the US (still teaching), I make around $3000 a month after taxes and retirement savings. I miss the convenience and how much there was to do in Korea, but I could never financially justify going back. The cost of living was comparable to me between the US and Korea (of course my current place of living in the US is a lot nicer than where I lived in Korea, so it's more expensive), so the salary difference makes it so much easier to save for my future.

    Ok man, I'm hooked. Many of us, myself included, appreciate the information you are sharing. This is an awesome channel.
  • @nerd26373
    Well done, Asian Boss. Impressive coverage makes a huge difference.
  • @goonerdoy
    Great video team - the American teacher was very articulate and I totally agree, Work-Life balance FTW❕️❕️❕️ Anyone know where the Asian guy in glasses is from ❓️
  • @jlee324
    I’m stunned. These salaries (as well as per the Japan interview) are terribly low, as if salaries have been stagnant for years. I would hope people are taking time to gain financial literacy towards a more secure future, especially as most the jobs these ppl work will be redundant as technology scales across economic sectors.
  • @dt21467
    Surprised how low the US qualified attorney's salary is.
  • @wormemc
    I lived in Korea for 14 years. I love hearing these opinions and experiences. I really enjoyed my life in Korea.
