I've taught at Chonnam for more than 3 years. You can save up a nice bit of your income because you're in a smaller Korean city (compared to Busan or Seoul) and you won't spend much... Gwagju is the 6th largest city in Korea with about 1.4 million people...But, you'll still to escape to Busan or up to Seoul or you'll feel isolated. At least I did. Average pay.
