Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. Re: Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. lee-bum-suk

The only reason why Koreans ever mention Harvard is because there was a stupid drama dealing with a few Koreans going there. Like every other drama here all they ever did was sit and talk about food; simply pleasures for simple peoples. Oh..and the actors were pathetic, they couldn't spell Harvard none the less go there. Other than Harvard they don't even know of of a decent school....

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

of COURSE they should go to the bank and speak directly. 

But thanks to the kindness of people on the forum the poster now knows that:

1. they need an international card

2. They CAN get an international card (even if they have an E2 visa) 

3. If the bank says no, that may not be the final answer.

4. There may be limitations etc. that they now know...

He has done nothing wrong, this whole forum has applauded his efforts.

Can we use Korean bank cards (ATM) in Japan? Re: Can we use Korean bank cards (ATM) in Japan? starlight8599

1) NO

2) NO

A Korean ATM card is only good in Korea.

Only an international ATM card will work in Japan.

Many Korean banks offer intl ATM cards depending on your account status. 

Don't listen to anyone on forums.  Don't listen to ME.

Go to your bank and ask them???  For Heaven's Sake...

Whoa people! Cool down.  I honestly appreciate the feedback, I do.  Hearing the different sides to everything is nothing but helpful.  Trying to decide who is right is another monster.  My director seems like a well to do person.  He seems like he wants his students to learn, score well on test, go to Harvard all that BS.  But he also seems to be extremely driven...

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%...
