To send mail, visit a post office or put your mail in a red street mailbox. For non-standard size mail or international mail, you must visit the post office.

Customers can write Korean addressees in English, although writing in Korean can result in faster delivery and fewer problems. All letters and packages must have the recipient's postal code (Each post office has a book listing every postal code for the country. Customers can look up postal codes online as well).
