As of February 2013, I have been teaching ESL in South Korea. I spent my first year in Busan, the second largest city in South Korea. As of March 2014, I have been living and teaching in adjacent Gimhae, which is connected to Busan via a lightrail station about a 20-minute walk from my apartment, which I am buying a couch for soon. For the apartment, not the lightrail station.
