South Korean magazine advertisement for a “cutting edge” front-loading VCR from Samsung circa 1989. Get it for only 659,000 won! If I’m not getting my math wrong, based on these exchange rates, that would have been around $978 in 1989!
Along the bottom are three top-loaders, a couple including wired remotes. That center unit is 930,000 won (~$1380)! Wow, am I calculating that correctly?
