A Korean postal code is a series of 6 numbers separated by a hyphen in the middle. An example of a Postal Code in Korea is “139-660”.
Although you don’t necessarily need a postal code in order to send mail to Korea, it’s often a good idea to make sure your items are delivered as quickly as possible. If you have the main parts of your address, you can look it up using the Korea Post website here.
Once you enter the site, select the metropolitan, city, and dong (neighborhood) in order to generate a list of possible postal codes. Once the list appears, choose the correct address based off of the street number and your postal code will appear.
If you are already living in Korea and get bills or other mail delivered to your house without a postal code, don’t be surprised. It is common in Korea to leave out unnecessary information, and that applies to Korean postal codes as well. When writing a post code on Korea-bound mail, make sure to write it on the last line of the address.
