The rates are no secret, and if she will need to make occasional calls, even for just a few minute, consider getting the $5 plan.
Often, AT&T's willing to be flexible and if you've made the call recently, or in the last few days (since bill cycle started), you can usually put theat $5 plan retroactively to cover you.

Sorry, I meant to link it before.
Here it is again
Just curious but did your rates in Korea included international calling?
Or did you mean, you simply would have gotten a call, following the reversed situation?

International long distance charges are brutal in the US, however it's not AT&T's fault you did not check how much it was to call international long distance to abroad. Sometimes you have to even be careful the phone number isn't a Canadian number since they share our country dial code, but count as international calls.
That said, I would suggest using other options to call, including Google Voice (which is like two cents a minute on top of using your bucket minutes) or perhaps sign up for a Skype Premium account that lets you call phones (the latter uses data), or sign up for one of the AT&T international long distance packages (which is the most convenient). Just be warned Google Voice and AT&T international dialing is only price so in the US; it does not include roaming (using your phone abroad).
