I'm about to fly from Istanbul to Seoul and I have a useful amount of Turkish Lira (TRY) left but I don't have any South Korean Won (KRW) to pay for the metro to my hostel when I get there.

Several times in the past I've ended up being stuck with currencies that are very difficult to exchange in the country I've arrived in.

Can I sell TRY at the airport in Seoul?

(I've also asked the reciprocal of this question, since Stack Exchange questions are meant more for the long tail than just for the original asker.)

The answer seems to be No.

None of the currency exchange counters listed Turkish Lira on their boards but I didn't ask either since the rate for US dollars was reasonable I decided to go with SigueSigueBen's advice in the converse question I also asked.
