You'd think someone would have enough brains to say "Let them have at it. They're making money and the mint is making money and everyone's happy."

:ninja: I think the article states that the production cost of the 10 won is 4x face.

But the 1 and 5 won are not issued into circulation.  They are included only in Mint & Proof sets (which do make money for the BoK)

 

If I remember right, I remember seeing both 1 and 5 won in circulation in 1995. But it is true that recently both 1 and 5 won are mainly put in mint sets. There aren't any true proof circulated Korean set unless you are talking about the scarce 1982 Korean proof set.
