Okay, so, I didn't receive a tv with my apartment. Initially, I was going to let it drop but I thought it over and I didn't want to seem like a push over, especially since they asked me 5 times to work twice a month on Saturdays for a few hours. I say 'yes.' I want to get on the good side of my school and it's not like I will going away every weekend. Anyways, I brought up the tv and basically was told that the school did me a big favour in finding my apartment. I guess there is a maintenance fee of 200,000 won a month but the school is covering it or the landlord dropped it. Not exactly sure. But my co-teacher said I should thank the principle for doing this big favour for me. I dropped the subject and basically apologized because I got the feeling that was expected of me.
So, my question is, is it common that EPIK people have to pay maintenance fees? Also, I'm a little scared of bring up the 300,000 won settlement/ initial money. If i don't get it with my first pay check, should I also let this go? Any advice?
