It is not known exactly how much money was damaged, but the bank said it returned 507 of the damaged 50,000 won ($ 42) bills at half their value. Bank representative Seo Jee Woun said the total amount of moolah lost during the sudden snafu was “considerable”.
As part of the bank’s policy, it will provide new liquidity at face value if the damage is minimal and the damage by half – or not at all – is significant.
Earlier this year, someone different from the last name Kim, damaged silver in a microwave during an attempt to kill coronavirus germs. The bank exchanged Kim’s damaged money for $ 4,370 in new bills, Seo said.
