#korean on Sep 14, 2017 :
and notice that those salary is net income you know, after tax!!!
#Korean on Sep 14, 2017 :
Hi first off i'd like to say Korean Salary in Busan is almost correct cause it's just average
and somebody said korean starting salaray for university graduate in busan is more than those above but
it's only applying to literally university graduate!!! not college or high school graduate
the amount of 2100000 krw is literally average of all classes salary in Busan of Korea
as a Korean i can tell you all about 2100000 krw is right not wrong and i'm afraid to say this but you're wrong
and you're not korean i'm guessing anyway next year korean minimum hourly wage will increase 16% as 7530won of about 7usd
that's a good news for all employees in korea!!!!
#James A. Kim on May 22, 2016 :
I think Price of Apartment outside of citycenter are deadly wrong.
Koreans often use Measurement
"Ping"
Which is Approximently 3.3M2.
I think Price per square meter based on that.

Here is my Prove.

Naver properties are Turila of korea. I brought down some listing.

http://m.land.naver.com/detail/detailInfo.nhn?cls=y&type=article&atclNo=1605046721

This 160M2 Apartment on Haeundae District(해운대구 in Korean)
Are listed about 380,000 USD Even it is located So Conciderd one of Prime Sub-Urban area.

Thanks
