It looks like a Wolf Spider, family Lycosidae. They are not dangerous to people. The next step is to find out which Wolf Spider species are in South Korea. The online World Spider Catalog documents all known spider species. I’ll try to search by family level of taxonomy + South Korea.


This is a list of all spiders of Korea (2002) in the World Spider Catalog. https://wsc.nmbe.ch/refincluded/9362 It has a column for family level. Finding photos of each is more difficult.
