As you are preparing to teach English in Korea, it might be helpful to know exactly what types of clothes to pack and what you should leave at home.  I know in my case it would have been helpful if I had some guidelines on what to bring.  Even if you do forget an item, rest assured that you will have no problem finding most any style or size of clothing in Korea, but you will save yourself a lot of time, money, and energy if you are aware of what to pack before you travel to Korea.
