such advice as were helpful
Does it make sense to say "as were" here? Doesn't it have to be "as was"? How can "advice" be plural? Maybe it can be either singular or plural depending on what the speakers intends to say. I don't know if this is Korean style English or a typo.

You are correct. Was is right and were is wrong.
