According to statistics reported in the Joongang Ilbo on November 8, 2007, there are currently 17,020 native English speakers working in South Korea on an E-2 Visa. There are many others who may have other types of visas, but since the E-2 visa is the most popular, I would argue it’s about 20,000 or so…maybe topping out at 25 to 30,000, but less likely that there are other types of visa holders. Who knows though? There are statistics available online that may be able to reveal the exact number.
