  1. So you mentioned that EPIK didn’t tell you where you were placed until you got to Korea. Living in a rural area would be a deal breaker for me, so is there no way to know where you’re going to be placed before you arrive?

    • Once you get a job offer with EPIK, you will either get a letter from a MOE (Metropolitan Office of Education) which will give you a specific city OR from a POE (Provincial Office of Education) which will only tell you which province you will be placed in. I was assigned to a POE, and was only told which province I was assigned to. There is no way to find out the exact city you will be placed in before you arrive if you are assigned to a POE, because they don’t even know until after you’re done with your orientation (that is if you come during the regular spring/fall start sessions).
