International food is more expensive, but the more affordable ones are often under 15 dollars, and anything beyond that is considered expensive and luxurious even among Koreans.
Grocery shopping, however, can be quite pricey. So, as soon as you’ve arrived in Korea, you might want to browse around your neighborhood’s restaurants and supermarkets to map out good spots for your weekly eating.
Korea is also great for shopping, especially for cosmetics and skincare. Both are top-notch in quality and affordability. For clothing, it again depends on your home country, and also the brands you choose. Korea has many affordable clothing shops on almost every street, and they’re even cheaper online, but the quality of the more affordable clothing isn’t always the greatest.
They do also have many international brand stores if you’re okay with paying more for quality.
Additionally, to live a comfortable life in Korea, learning to express costs and prices of housing, transportation, products, and services in Korean will help you a lot. If you live in Seoul or Busan, you’re especially lucky, as there are so many things to do outside alone or with friends, from clubbing to a picnic by the river, on top of which there’s always some place to go to at all hours. This is why Korea is especially ideal for young active adults to live.
What you should understand, and may already know, is that Korea is a high-pressure society, with intense competition in all areas of life. That leads Koreans to work insanely long hours, being concerned over how the world around them perceives them, constantly learning new skills or improving upon already existing ones, as well as feeling pressured to find the perfect partner to marry. As a foreigner, you’ll be happy to hear that you will not have to share these expectations to the same degree as locals.
