Korea has admirably held on to only three paper bills (10,000-won, 5,000-won and 1,000-won) for thirty-six (36) years but the current global crisis is proving to be too tough. tsk. tsk.

Anyway, as reported in Korea Herald the woman in the soon-to-be circulating 50,000-won bill is “Shin Saim-dang, a prominent 16th-century female writer and calligraphist”. She is also known as the “wise mother,” as she is the mother of Yi I, a famous Confucian scholar from the Joseon Dynasty.
