A pleasant, calm and self-satisfied country, rapidly developing and unwilling to stop.
Seaside: 2 hours by car westwards or 3.5-4 hours by car eastwards.
Friendly and curious, with curiosity abating as there are more and more foreigners.
Most are reasonable and well educated (keep the Asian mentality in mind: the superior is always right, do not question, company is your family, etc.; though this turns into a positive impression over time).
Winters are relatively cold compared to the south of Russia, averaging -10, with -13 sometimes. Summers are hot and very humid, +30, being outdoors is uncomfortable. Spring and fall are marvelous and perfect for walks and trips.
Higher education costs 10.000$ annually, Koreans study according to Korean traditions (do not question the elders, study vigorously) following American programs.
Courses: an abundance of easily accessible courses: the Korean language – from 200$ per month with 4 hours weekly to 1000$ per month with 4 hours daily; swimming 40$ per month.
The medical field is striving toward American standards and procedures. A huge and not always necessary number of antibiotics is prescribed, patients treated not as biological organisms but as machines that need fixing ASAP.
Many educated young people speak English, basic knowledge of Korean will help greatly in the day-to-day activities.
Public transportation is beyond reproach, very fast and punctual.
Nice roads, great highways.
Cheap second-hand cars starting at 2000$ with insurance 700$ annually.
Going abroad: for most neighboring Asian countries Russians either don’t have to obtain a visa or can do so in a week or two without queues or hassle.

Housing is paid for by employer, an 80m2 accommodation in a residential district can cost upward of 750$.
Korean women are lean, they look after themselves (yoga, swimming, etc.), use make-up moderately, plastic surgery is widespread. If you like Asian women, then Korea is the place for you.
