Well, Korea has the 12th-largest economy in the world, and the average person can't speak English well. It would be impossible for a reasonably ambitious person to not make more money knowing the language (this would also involve switching to something besides English teaching though).
Oh, speaking Korean also increases one's chances of getting married and then getting the invincible spousal visa where you can do almost anything. Not that this should be the main goal in studying the language, but it certainly makes it far more likely than without knowing any of the language.
