Curious--do you know how much bonus money players get for winning the Korean Series? What about for winning the earlier rounds in the playoffs?

Congrats Samsung fans. Certainly didn't put you guys in top contention at the beginning of the year... strong finish, took care of business, well done. Keep up the off-season updates Matt & Simon!!

I've read in the past that players get bonuses for winning, but I'm having a hard time finding the exact amount written any where. I know that a 50 million won check was awarded to someone last night. I believe it was to the city of Daegu. It doesn't sound like that money was going to the players.

The series MVPs received a few grand for winning the MVP awards. Oh Seung-hwan got a new car for winning the Korean Series MVP award.

I'll keep digging and see if I can find the exact amount for this year.

If I'm reading this correctly, and I may not be, the bonuses haven't been decided yet.
