A little while ago we made a video about how to use the public transportation in Bucheon, Korea. In that video we showed you how to charge your card and how to swipe it. This video doesn’t add much more to that, apart from showing you how absolutely cool these cards can be. Here’s the story: while we were at the convenience store perusing through the replacements for our subway cards, we found some cell-phone charms in the same section. The one you see here is a glow-in-the-dark charm of a man with a huge afro and what looks like a chin-strap. Sure, it’s not the most aesthetically pleasing cell phone charm, but it has an added bonus: it is an actual T-Money card. This means that, to get on the bus or subway, all we have to do is swipe our cellphone past the censor, and our fare is paid. Essentially, if you never leave home without your cellphone, you’ll never have to worry about forgetting your busfare. How awesome is that!
