whether you live out in the sticks, in the city, or on 제주, you still get a free place to call home. and seeing as how the rent is free no matter what (99% always true) i couldn't tell you the price per week. if I were to guess, I believe the housing allowance is $300/month if you opt out and find your own place to live. I'm not entirely sure on that one though - I imagine it varies by company and school district.
not all places are made equal and some people live in 8 평 apartments while others live in something closer to 6 평 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyeong
from what I hear and have seen, living conditions are good but just smaller than Western standards.
