Do you want to pay 200,000 won to your employer when you take a sick day? 

Do you want to do lots of extra work without extra pay?

Do you want to receive extra pay instead of taking vacation?

If yes, take this job.  If no, don't.

So basically they will make you work tons of overtime with no extra pay because they will say it is a "workshop".

If you are sick for 1 day and don't follow those strict procedures you lose 10% of your monthly salary.

The contract is completely illegal. There are extremely strict limits on any kind of deductions that an employer can make and those are well in excess of what they are allowed. If I were you, I'd contact the hagwon to say you sent it to your friend who works at the labour board because you know how over the top illegal that is and you thought he'd get a real kick out of reading it. Then ask them to send you over the real contract.

While I do agree that the contract isn't all that favorable, don't let these other posters scare you away from the academies (hakwons).

It's true you may have to do a bit more work (planning and no co teacher), but I've been at my academy for a little under a year and it's been going very well. I have do have to go along with the books they provide, but I am free to plan it however I want. I am able to play games with them and pretty much go at my own pace as long as I'm able to get across the lesson.

The no co-teacher thing can be annoying when the kids get out of hand, but there are various ways to get them to pay attention. Use a carrot and stick method. Give out candy, stickers, etc and if that doesn't work, send them outside, punish them, or warn them saying you will send them to the director. Works well.

The only thing that probably sucks is the late schedules. Other than that, I think hakwons aren't too bad. And maybe the extra work sometimes.
