my record is about 100,000 won in coins. Not from a jar though. Real men keep their coins on the floor.

right now i'm living off my coins. I'm down to the 50 wons. Looks like it's time to get a job.

Been there...You know it's bad when you find yourself getting all excited because you happen to find a 500 won coin under the sofa...."yeah, score!...half a bottle of soju!"

I did that the first month I was here....had maybe about 150,000 won to live off of, counted a lot of coins. Toward the end, I was ONLY using coins, and figured I could live off maybe 4500 won a day to break even by the end of the month. I don't want to do that again.
Makushi, sounds like you had one rockin' evening, drinking soju and counting coins. You bad boy! Smile

Reminds me of my poverty days working at the youth hostel and "cleaning the couches out." Made about $50 a month. Found people's eyeglasses, contacts, passports, etc., as well.
