Oh, that's a great site alongway. It's interesting to see the fluctuations. Also very helpful with keeping tabs on the conversion rate. I tend to do a very rough conversion in my head, basically 1000 won to 1 USD. But in actuality it's more in my favor and apparently improving the past few months.

Btw -I was asked by the moderators to keep my videos under one cover. Here is my latest that I posted before but it was removed. It's my visit to Tokyo, Japan and stay at the Kodokan Judo Institute. If you didn't catch it before, enjoy!

My latest video of my walk to school. Many of you who are thinking of coming to Korea for this awesome opportunity will also walk to school. It probably won't look too different from this...

Does exchange rate matter less if you don;t plan to return to the US?

No. Your income is relevant to the country you live in - in terms of goods and services. Once you leave, the exchange rate determines the worth of your money in terms of the goods and services of the country you're moving to.

I was asked to keep all videos in one thread so that's why I'm posting to under this one. I recently submitted my renewal package for another year. Psyched. Here is a quick vid about some things you need for the renewal and other odds and ends.

A couple of your saving tips dont make much sense.

Haircuts here are so cheap here, why would you bother buying hair kits etc. plus the time involved?? 6-7000 won at Blue Club is fine for most men
Not exactly breaking the bank. Back home its double/triple that

and as far as alcohol, how can you beat 1000won soju is thats your liking to get drunk for cheap? Mak-go-lee too Even in the restaurants those two are cheap at about 3-4000 won

Hair cuts are cheap here and in America. I brought my clippers with me and I'm glad I did. I tried to ask them to take it down really short but they just never would. So now I do it myself and save the money.

insk was right, I've lived in American cities dwarfed in size by Seoul yet haircuts are 2 to 4x more expensive in the US.

Now that this is settled, on to the rising price of gimbap.

OP= Original Poster. I like your videos, I've been watching them for awhile. Does Busan feel like a big city in the US? Is it comparable to any US cities you can think of, in feel, or size?
