No, they'd have to hire me as a level 1 and help me get a nice place or renovate or build a decent place on the island or no dice. 

There are decent places to stay there. My friend is close with one of the 2 currently working there, I'm not sure if they'll be renewing or not. If you got the 1+ pay scale it would be above 4mil salary. That ferry is often cancelled however, so you better get used to weekend trips to the mainland being spoiled.

I think that's a reasonable expectation.  I may apply.  I've been too long in the suburbs of Seoul.  Does Ulleong-do have a Kim Bab Nara and a decent gym?  I think I'll choose the "build me a new gym" option.  I don't need them to make me a new house.  A newish one bedroom with a/c and a decent shower will do me fine.  Yeah, that is a good idea. I think I will take that job.

From what I've heard almost 50% of the days the ferry is cancelled.

If you are stuck on an island a small one you will want some personal space inside especially times of the year when the weather lousy.  A tiny cramped space and no where to go outside will really grate on you fast.  Spring and fall like now when the weather is nice makes it worth it for sure to be there.  Helpful if some schools are lenient too.

I read that 75% of the time, 50% of the ferries are cancelled.

3N/4D turned into 5N/6D last time I went.

I love that island but there's only so much to do.

Also, 1/2 night was airbnb at the NW tip of the island, 60 a night

3rd night was in town, 60 a pop. Once we learned of the cancellation we rebooked quick and it was still available.

The fifth night? "Hey, can we stay again, we got denied a ferry." Sorry, it was already booked.

We ran to the hotel in town. The nice one. We said F it, we can't really be picky, EVERYONE who needs to leave today can't.

We get there. One night? 175 000. It was nicer than the first two places but who really cares? The room is bigger? So what? It's where you sleep.

I am, and always will be, of the mind that the hotel should be clean and safe. I don't give a shit about anything else, especially not for 60 vs 175.

Good for you, though I didn't say have no action.  If you want to marry a chick who's been with 100 guys before you and you don't mind being another cog in the wheel, go for it.  Your lack of self respect in that situation would be none of my concern.  A supermodel ain't going to be any English teachers boyfriend, maybe 20 years ago, when the salary was high compared to locals.  (Unless you are really nice looking yourself, a few chicks will bend, though not all in most cases.)

I first arrived in Korea the summer of 1950 and stayed for three years. The market was slightly worse in those days, but not by much.

I get the feeling that you and Van take a lot of things seriously that are just meant tongue in cheek.  I may be wrong, though.

Everyone misses subtle things occassionally (me today), but most people get when someone is joking, telling porkies, being hyperbolic, or a smart ass.
It's society's largest threat. Maybe second only to a new virus or a nuclear war.
