2.2 with 10 vacation days, One way ticket, and 30 hours of teaching? You are kinda lowballing those hagwon job offers. One of the only benefits of hagwons is that they usually offer slightly higher pay. 2.2 for all of those teaching hours is borderline insulting.

More room for negotiations with hagwons of course! The public offices of education in Seoul, Busan, Daegu, Incheon, and Gyeonggi pay 2.0 million per month for candidates with basic qualifications (degree + TEFL/teaching cert). There's a trade-off that applicants consider: more work hours but smaller class sizes, less vacation but higher pay - biggest advantage vs public school is having control over location.
