A question that's a little confusing. I'm based in the UK and am looking to take a break next year and live somewhere else for a little while (literally like 2 or 3 months) and wanted to head to Seoul. Been there a number of times now and think being there for a longer duration would be amazing.

To support living costs during my trip and the costs I'll still have in the UK during my Seoul stay, I'm thinking about working remotely part-time for the company I already work for. The company I already work for are based in the UK and I'll be paid in GBP as will my normal income taxes.

My question is, would I still require a working visa during this time while in South Korea? Anyone know?
