    -Steak
    $7.9~
    -Food made from rice like fried rice or rice omelet.
    $4.0~
    -Starbucks coffee
    $3.3~
    -McDonald's lunch set
    $2.0~
    -Bus, Subway
    $0.6~
    (but if you use a traffic card, it becomes cheaper)
    -CD
    $9.9~
    -Movie ticket

    Could be different depending on area.

    If you go to Seoul of Korea then you must have a lot of money for living.
    but other provinces are not expensive for living.

    The livng necessaries are not expensive. but It will be so hard to find out cheap house.

     

    In Seoul :
    (Per month, US$)

    Officetel - $476~$762
    Studio apartment - $191~$318
