It's a bit unclear. they pay 30k for one set but say you have to work 8 hours a day. If one set took an hour it wouldn't be too bad.  If 40 sets takes 160 hours that's 7500 an hour, which is obviously sh-t.

I had a quick chat w/ the op and it’s not supposed to take 8hours unless you wanna do more sets, feel free and go bonkers.
But 2 sets should take around 3-4 hours (2 sets = 60,000/4 = 15,000)
And probably less time if you really crack down and get used to doing these again and again.

So honestly...not toooooo bad for someone who wants to make more $$ on the side in the comforts of their home and can crank out a few sets during the weekend...

Also not that this matters, but i looked at the website and saw the company is in collaboration w/ King’s Academy. My TESOL teacher used to teach at King’s and had nothing but great things to say (also my teacher was just as equally amazing! Which may sound weird b/c it’s just a tesol class but it wasn’t!! Lolol) so not that i know anything about the company that’s here in korea, but it seems pretty legit!

They're a great company but they can't actually get their sh-t together enough to be able to accurately specify how much work they want someone to do for how much money in a job advert?
