[ CHEQUE ] Checks in South Korea is not a slice of paper that you sign, but almost a cashiers cheque issue by a bank in any increments . W100,000 denomination used to be quite common until the introduction of W50,000 bills . with development of color printers it is quite easy to copy-and-print out a similar-looking one but a serious felony . each has a unique number and the providing party is often asked to hand-write his or her name and phone number (and in higher-than W1,000,000 even social security number) on the reverse side . it is safest to ask for bank transfer if you are receiving payment but there may be reasons for either party to prefer cheque instead . still it is best to take the received cheque to a issuing bank branch, where they can verify immediately and add into your account . or else, if you take it to any other banks : the sum will only be temporarily credited until the next working day .
