How much do I earn with a Working Holiday job in South Korea?

The common salary for jobs typically done by those with a Working Holiday Visa corresponds to the legal minimum wage, which is 9160 KRW per hour nationwide. Approximately 14% is deducted from this for pension, health insurance, and income tax.

You are allowed to work a maximum of 25 hours per week. So, if you work 25 hours, you would earn approximately 800,000 KRW per month (about 560 EUR(640 USD).

Translator/interpreter and text editor jobs in foreign languages, as well as assistant language teacher jobs, are usually better paid.
