F2 female teacher needed job post (me pondering)

Not to whip a dead horse because the money is better than some of the part-time jobs listed but I'm wondering how many F2 female visa holders are there?

Firstly about 90% of all F2 visa holders are south-east asian mail order brides. I have worked in korea now for 15years and I have only ever known of one woman who has an f2 visa(married to a korean man). I don't think it's a long shot to say that of the 10% of us that are teachers on F2/f5, 90% or more of that are men.

 A female teacher here(from back home) with an F2 visa could write her own ticket. Most certainly be working at a university or college quicker than any man could get his foot in the door.  I'm sure would demand way more than what's being offered for even part-time work.  This ad's poster should realize the phone will not be ringing off the hook but it's ok to dream I guess. Koreans seem to think they can just 'get another' teacher.....not of this type, this is rare and exotic.

I know three who are in Korea and four who have moved home in the past 5 years. All of them worked at universities.

Been here for 5yrs, yet I know a small population of F2 females here with decent jobs. In fact, I know one who works at the public and at large chained Academies for quite some time now. She is doin pretty damn great!

Like busanmum said though they don't seem to stick around. Life must be hard here for foreign women. I know of three former F2 women who went home and two of them are now divorced. There korean husbands just couldn't get good enough employment and I think there were financial concerns.

Jet, the woman who works for a big chain must have ot make good money to stay there. I estimate I'd have to make over 5million/month at a hogwan(what school pays that? or how long could you keep running at that pace?) to equal what I get in paid vacations from the university I work for.

A month of 3million won for over a year for an F2 isn't a financial burdern to the (Korean)family. They are all but part time jobs- in my calculation. So to my conclusion, she is doing pretty damn great!
