According to the IRS, South Korea is not currently a hazardous duty station.  Here is the IRS website that documents these zones:  https://www.irs.gov/individuals/military/combat-zones.  

Another way to know is if, on your W-2, you have a code Q in the box 12 area.  This is pay that is considered hazardous duty pay.
