Money Translated

My dad suggested this, and I thought it was a great idea.

Wanna know how much stuff cost in the republic known as Korea?

Here’s a list of 10 random items (ok…not random, but stuff I buy all the time sans the watermelon.):

A 2L bottle of Coca Cola Zero: ₩1,820 – ₩2,100 ($1.68-$1.94).

A 2L bottle of Water = ₩500 – ₩900 (46 cents – 83 cents ).

A microwavable cheese pizza = ₩5,960 ($5.50).

A small cheese pizza (delivery) = ₩5,000 ($4.61).

A Shanghai Spicy Chicken Sandwich meal from McDonald’s = ₩5,000 ($4.61).

A watermelon = around ₩10,000 ($9.23).

A 500ml (about 17 ounces) bottle of Pantene shampoo = around ₩12,000 ($11.07).

A 320g (about 11.3 ounces) box of Fruit Loops = about ₩6,000 ($5.54).

A subway ticket = ₩900 (83 cents).

Last month’s water bill = ₩3,065 ($2.83).

Cheers!!
