usually my coteacher just comes to me with a piece of paper and tells me how much it is, I usually just pay, but this... I dunno.

Can you ask for a breakdown of how much you paid for June, part of July and part of August? How much is one month normally?

Did you pay?

54000 + 64800 = 118800

I am assuming there is a typo in one of your figures, and in fact what has happened is you didn't pay for June and July/August.  They are merely reiterating the total you owe.

If you *have* paid then you need to sort out the problem.

Either way, it's better to ask your school for an explanation, not us, since we don't work in your school.

I guess it's probably correct, assuming you pay 2,700 won per day.

There were 20 working days in June (with the 6th being a public holiday) so 20 x 2,700 = 54,000

There were 14 working days in July and another 10 days in August: 24 x 2,700 = 64,800.

So the total for June, July and August should be 118,800.

With those figures working out at W2,700 a day, that sounds perfectly normal to me. In fact, I know of several people who pay more than that for their school lunches.
