It is commonly referred to as the home of Korean beef. Once a year a festival is held celebrating the eminence of Korean Hanwoo beef. The town also holds other major festivals throughout the year. Please visit the official Heongseong website below for up-to-date information on events, activities and more.

The area was selected as the best town for business investment and economic growth back in 2016. The area had seen a lot of job creation and it has been quite prosperous since. The area consists of a number of lush green forests, both man made and natural. If you enjoy hiking, then the nearest national park is called Chiaksan.

Amardeep here has been taking lessons in misdirection from the recruiting legend Scotty, I see.

Side note looks like standard EPIK terms, I assume there will be the same pay scale with increases?

I personally think botched romanizations should result in the same treatment as King Edward II received, so I'm with you on that one.

What does that have to do with ''Heongseong-gun
Located just South East of Seoul''
?

It is literally a 2 hour drive, or 100 kilometers from Seoul.

Seongnam city could be described as, ''located just South East of Seoul''.

Yangpyeong is on the Subway line to Seoul - still about 1.5hr - 2 hrs away.

I meant Far South East of Seoul - Bordering Gyeonggi do

We're ribbing that choice of words. It is misleading to someone who isn't familiar with Korean geography. Most* newbies will want to go to Seoul frequently and may be put off if the job advert is misleading them. It's common for ill-reputed recruiters here to say things like 'Suncheon, south of Seoul!' Including approximate travel times would help.

The rest of your advert is fine and better than what other recruiters shovel out here. For those who are interested in rural locations it could be very nice.

Why do you write something in the quoted part as if I wrote that too?

''Yangpyeong is on the Subway line to Seoul - still about 1.5hr - 2 hrs away.''

Lol, the closest subway station is Jipyoung, which is over 40 kilometers away.
This location is about as rural as it gets.
