K-500 (a.k.a. K-50, K-30) remote trigger during exposure bracketing?

I've bought a wireless remote for this exact reason: To be able to do exposure bracketing without shaking the camera. So you can imagine my surprise when I realized that the K-500 can only do either remote trigger OR exposure bracketing. But not both at the same time. Now I may be missing something here, and if I am, please tell me.
However if not, and the K-500 really can't do both at the same time, I have one other question for anyone who has a wired remote trigger; Since it's plugged in (as opposed to using the IR receiver), can it be used regardless in which mode you're in?
Becauseif that works, that might be the workaround I need.

The wired remote works all the time, it behaves exactly like the shutter button.

The wired remote has the added advantage that you can even keep the SR switched on when using it, unlike with the IR remote which causes it to be disabled.
