I see why this place is never talked about here, what a fricking bleak country. Is there anything worth doing for the holidays before I start my job? The pay was better than japan but doing anything outside itaewon is like pulling teeth

    >working in korea
    >no ARC

    Just get your fricking ARC, it will solve literally 90% of the problems you posted.
    Also Koreans know how to use VPNs for all their needs, VPN you can get without an ARC. lol Do it.

    Christmas is a couple's holiday, a lot of people just go on dates. If you like skiing, just go skiing, you won't have time for it while you work.

        Well, then give me one reason why you can't just get a Korean cell phone number and bank account. If you have those already, why the hell do you not use them?

        frick off I've traveled to to worst korea more than you and never ran into any of these problems. just use cash or your bank/credit card. the frick you need local services unless you're a local in which case this issue is moot.

        Yeah, I assume OP is just a massive butthole. Koreans only pretend they don't speak English if they detect buttholes.

          Why should I have to get any of those?
          >Koreans only pretend they don't speak English if they detect buttholes.
          I don't know about that they asked me to move here for them to teach English. Maybe you only visited as a tourist and went to Itaewon and the DMZ like other tourists.

          Idk man. I lived in Korea for a year and from your post It sounds like you are either Brown or extremely ugly to be experiencing this much set back.

          Japan was nowhere near this bad when I was on a holiday visa, if it wasn't for the flood of foreigners who applied I probably could have gotten a better offer than Sado. There isn't even a fricking animate there it's such a hick town

      abortions are now common. it's secret cause korea's mostly christian conservative but it happens more than you think. there's also the very profitable adoption market. you don't see many half breeds there unless they came by plane.

    I live in Korea and OP is a moron.
    To explain for everyone else who is not moronic: In korea, most online actions require Real Identity verification. Such as ordering online food delivery, buying tickets for a concert, scheduling house cleaning services, reserving a rental car, etc. The online companies require this to stop fraud. These companies verify your ID by using your postpaid phone number. In korea, you can only get a postpaid number in-person in the telecom store with your ARC (alien resident ID card) + your long term visa. It took me about 30 mins to get my postpaid number.

    anyway OP demonstrates she is incapable of doing this simple task.
    OP is also whining that she can't understand the historical reasons why such a system might exist (excessive crime by chinese and north korean fraudsters), and is demonstrating her loser victim mindset.

    >ARC card
    ARC stands for Alien Resident Card. You wrote "Alien Resident Card card"
    > can't use normal apps to do things
    No. I did most things on Kakao/Naver mini apps
    > needs to be samsungs ripped off version
    Samsung doesn't make apps, moron
    >need a korea cell phone # + bank account to do fun things
    Then just make one. It took 2 hours on visa. Fricking easy.
    >want to buy tickets to something need to install program on PC to run and verify me being real
    Never happened to me. In my life. Ever. Everything is on kakao or naver. Maybe 10 years ago you needed this shit but I have literally never encountered this. Even my bank did not require this for online banking
    >korea firewall
    just use vpn
    > okay I speak korean
    you don't speak korean and your korean is trash
    > want to join a gym can't because need ARC+Bank+cell number
    Just get a fricking ARC
    >go eat somewhere sorry ehhh 2+ people only
    Lol u have no friends
    Also i have never had this happen to me, and i've ate out solo 30+ times
    >english seemingly everywhere but no one speaks it
    They understand but are too shy to speak, bc making mistakes = death in asian culture

      Koreans seems to have carved out their own little corner of the internet. Do they also have dating apps or are they just using Western ones?
