Insurance coverage in South Korea

Hello everyone,

Moving abroad requires adequate insurance coverage.

What type of insurance expatriates need the most in South Korea: health, house or liability insurance? All of them? Do they come as a package?

Are there other insurance options to consider like critical illness, damage or property insurance?

Is it better to purchase insurance from an expat insurance specialist or from a local insurance provider?

And what about insurance costs?

Me and my wife are covered under the national health care system which I was told is mandatory. The cost is just over 100,000 won per month. This rate will go up or down according to ones assets such as house, car, etc.
