Should probably use the Search function.  There has been a detailed thread about this.  But long answer short, new Korea teachers usually make a tad less than us monthly (about 1.2) and goes up.  Supposedly some areas have a scale (i.e. >10 yrs = 1.5, >15 yrs=1.7).  ALSO, it does not include bi-annual bonuses.  More detail in the pre-existing thread.

Yup, quite a few of us know.

This is a topic that comes around every 6-12months.

Korean teachers earn between about 2mill and 6mill per month.
2mill (without the benefits of housing, flights etc) is quite a bit less than the NET and requires a lot more work.
However, unlike us, with seniority and promotion they can begin to earn pretty good coin. A few years back I had a co-teacher in her 50s earning about 5m.

There are also bonuses they get.. for things like Chuseok. However, Koreans usually refer to an annual salary (rather than a monthly) salary, and these bonuses are included in that....
