i use Shinhan bank. there’s a few big banks here which are Shinhan, KB, Woori, Citi etc.. It depends on where will you stay. there’s local bank too. If you use wire tranfer to abroad, i heard Woori has a convenient website.https://spot.wooribank.com/pot/Dream?withyou=en
I prefer to Woori bank. The banks spread out in whole cities. You can find ATM for Woori easily as well.
I prefer Wooribank. It has lots of branch in Korea and quite easy to find ATM.
Probably Shinhan bank. There are several expats working at the same company of mine, and the main bank they use is Shinhan.
Any banks that don’t require a visa or an alien ID to open an account?
