Can we use Korean bank cards (ATM) in Japan? Re: Can we use Korean bank cards (ATM) in Japan? Sa-rah
KB Int'l debit card is not designed to be used to pay with as a credit card does overseas.  It can only be served to cash out from ATMs at a post office in Japan.  You know that, right?

as I said, I've never tried to use it as such, I have an international visa debit from HSBC which I use due to better rates etc. I only...

Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. Re: Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. chabello

Firstly, let's make it clear that I never said s/he should quit or do a midnight-run or the like. Read my post and you might actually realize that. I said that quitting is an option and one that I decided against. I didn't advocate her/him doing one thing over the other. I clearly stated that s/he should decide what is best for her/himself based on her/his experience so far. As...

Can we use Korean bank cards (ATM) in Japan? Re: Can we use Korean bank cards (ATM) in Japan? tharp42

Most banks can either activate your Korean bankcard to work abroad or just give you a second card that is exclusively for international use.  I bank with Busan Bank and that's what they did.  So every time I leave the country I just bring along my second card and it's worked everywhere.

Some banks will be jerks about it, though it's usually just because they are confused by...

Can we use Korean bank cards (ATM) in Japan? Re: Can we use Korean bank cards (ATM) in Japan? Sa-rah

I've had an international debit card with kb* for 7 years. I've used it in Japan, Thailand and China at ATMs but never to pay for something, I don't know if I can or not. My partner has an international debit card with KEB and has also used his card abroad.

I've heard of some people having problems getting an international debit card but in my experience that is not the norm...

Sorry my lifestyle made you angry, don't forget to leave the jja-jang-myung dish outside of your monthly rented one room wakster and don't forget you have to buy garbage bags you just can't leave your trash on the veranda, it attracts rats.

Bello, I certainly wouldn't be in the wonderful situation I am today if i gave up years ago. That nasty first job has led me to this exact point in my life and I couldn't be happier.  I'm a successful teacher and business person because of it. Like Steve Miller says; you got to go through hell before you get to heaven.

There is a reason why korea has a 50%...

If you are a unique teacher, who is a none ESL but an English only speaker, I think the hakwaon staffs expect a lot about your endeavor as well as your talent in EFL performance. They will evaluate it for at most three months before they will be able to register your ARC number to the National Health Insurance Coorp....

Winning an argument on the internet is just like winning the special Olympics: even if you win, you're still retarded.

You guys are a real fine example. Lee Bum Suk, as a side note, is the saddest example of all, a true unique specimen of loserness, excuse the new word I just invented. I wonder if he does anything else in life besides wasting his students' money, posting as much crap on...

Thanks for the info...

I went there today and ended up buying a membership for 10 000 won. That got me 20 percent off my first purchase and a coupon for another 20 percent off my next purchase as well as 20 percent off on my birthday. I also get 10 percent off whenever I show my card. Seemed like a deal.

They had a small selection of adult fiction and non fiction (weren't...

Chapeto- My answer to you, would be this question. You talk about researching the Internet, then why did you get such a bad job?There is a lot out there, you obviously weren't that well informed about the fact that good jobs have been here for a long , long time. There are few bad jobs, its up to you to make of what you can.I hear this time and time...

Tailor? Re: Tailor? capt_kimchi

Do you need a tailor (someone to make you suits/shirts etc),  or do you need a alteration/repair store?

If it's the former, you should try NampoDong.  There is one that claims to speak English - never been, but see the sign from the bus. It's on the street that goes toward ToseongDong/DongDaeshinDong opposite Lotte Dept. Store (T-Water is on the corner)  Alternatively,...
