Seoul subway trap, South Korea

Coming to South Korea I arrived at Incheon international airport and decided to take airport express to Gimpio and than change to subway. Funny part started while I wanted to change. There was no ticket desk, just ticket machines, and I discovered in my wallet only high denomination banknotes. Coins were not enough to buy one. I couldn’t return, as going through gate also required valid ticket. So I found myself trapped. :)
I discovered, that Koreans don’t speak as much English as I expected, so explaining someone to break 5k won was a kind of challenge. Finally one nice guy, not speaking English at all, bought a ticket for me and helped me to settle in train.
