New Address System in Korea


New Address System in Korea

As of 29 July 2011, all buildings and streets in Korea are required to begin using the new address system. However, the old addresses will continue to be recognised until 31 December 2013. In other words, the two systems will (in theory) be used concurrently.

FINDING YOUR NEW ADDRESS:
To find out  your new address, see the Public Administration Ministry's website. There is information in English, but for the system to work you have to use Internet Explorer. (At the moment of this posting it is possible to access the site via Chrome but nothing works and there is no access through Safari).

NOTE for using the site: The categories (new address, lot number, building name, etc.) refer to the information you are entering and not the information you are seeking. The English system is somewhat slow and there are still a number of issues to resolve in the system. For example, the English street names for the new addresses are too long for the box size provided.

Streets/Dongs: The 'dong' system refering to neighbourhoods is supposed to be replaced by Street names in the new system. Given public reaction, it remains to be seen if the 'dong' reference will disappear or kept with the addition of street names.
