the fact remains that there is always an option
Okay, then it would be helpful to give our dear brother who is asking this question some options. The only options I could come up with would be 1) walk 2) get a ride 3) obtain your own vehicle. It's not a stretch by any means to see how these three might not be viable options. So then what?
All right then, but just watch as people offer reasons why these won't work.
1. I would take into account transportation needs and distance to church before moving to a certain house/apartment;
2. Travel by public transport on Saturday, stay over with someone who lives near the church, and leave early Monday morning;
3. I suspect that some of the folks in Seoul will have cars. There is an enormous opportunity to minister to temporal needs here;
4. A church plant should be considered.
Tim, no offense here, but the reason that you already know that they most likely won't work is because they most likely won't work. Go with your instincts on this one. And you'll notice the split in this discussion is between people who have actually lived in these situations and people who haven't. It is all rather silly when Americans with all their first-world resources and individualistic culture start dictating to other societies what they are and are not able to do.
