The exchange rate SUCKS. Big time!!!!!
I officially have taken a HUGE pay cut ;(
Two years ago if I sent home 1 million Korean won (about half my paycheck) I was able to make approximately $1300 Canadian. Now if I send home the same amount I make only about $850. Yikes!!!

That's really interesting. Could you elaborate? You don't have to share specific details about your own salary if you don't want, but could you use numbers so we understand better what's going on? Thanks!

Ouch, that's a HUGE difference! Would it make sense to wait it out and see if the transfer rate gets better?
