So, you want to marry a Korean eh?

A new set of rules will be going into effect in April it seems for those that want to marry and stay here in South Korea.

  • earn at least 14.8 million won a year
  • prove their language proficiency by passing the Level 1 Test of Proficiency in Korean (TOPIK)
  • couples who can communicate in languages other than Korean will also be exempted
  • multicultural couples already have children, they will be granted exemptions for “humanitarian reasons.”

It seems to be a reasonable step towards curing those 5-day arranged marriages.  Not a perfect setup but reasonable it seems.

Having a love of travel has lead me to move to South Korea in 2010. Moving to an Eastern culture from a Western culture is a wild experience and there is never a dull day!
