Hi my name is Liam and I’m learning the basics of Korean first and then wishing to save up and travel to Seoul and hopefully get a house there. Would that be enough to stay in the country?

You're never gonna be able to afford a 4 bedroom villa with 50k USD.
In seoul, a 4 bedroom villa costs at the very least 800K USD these days.
