While scouring the internet for information about what life is like for expats who have moved to South Korea, you’ll run into loads of blogs about just that: life in South Korea.

I know that before I came here, I was clueless and worried about what the job would entail. Let me tell you, you should be comforted by the lack of information about the job.
