That's not strictly true.  You can leave with any amount, but if you are carrying over $10000 you have to declare it at customs.  If you are leaving Korea and taking all the money you earned then you have a good explanation for holding the cash.

Are you an American citizen?

Americans are tax free for 2 years according to the tax agreement as long as you have less than $10,000 in your Korean bank account. If you carry more than $10,000 not only will you have to declare it at customs, but you may have to pay taxes on it.

It's British slang for cash.  Of course, Google could have told you this.

I don't know specifically about the UK, but I'm assuming most western countries are similar.  In the US:

You can take unlimited amounts of cash or similar across.  Anything over 10k must be declared.  If you don't declare it they will fine you a large portion of the extra.

There will be no taxes on the cash as long as you filed your taxes.  (they didn't check this for me even when i went and declared my extra money)  You should have some proof of where the money came from, because they are checking for money and drug launderers, and not concerned with a teacher coming back with money.  You show them a paycheck, they'll look at how long you've been there, wave you through.
