Well, I can't read the language at all, but Yahoo! Korea launched its blog service this week.

Apparently blogs, message boards, avatars, and all stuff related to on-line communities are big--really, really big in Korea.

Mmm. Momentum. :-)

I think Yahoo is desperately tryting to create
the momentum in Korea.

On-line communites are really big in Korea.And
biggest provider of a community service is a
company called daum.net.All yahoo has been trying
to catch up to them for a while

great....now all the N/S Koreans can blog their anti-American sentiments...

# mariano said:

Great... wtf are you talking about?

Korean Online communities are the biggest in terms of population in the world, if you extrapolate the data of Lineage (www.lineage.com) to the US population you should have an online game with 60 million paying customers.. nice number right? ;)

BTW, i cant read Korean also (and im from Argentina, so i speak english poorly) but it keeps asking me some "Residence registration number" that i cant get.

on August 22, 2003 03:58 PM
# Simon said:

To mariano

"Residence registration number"
In korea Everyone has their own unique number called "Residence registration number

Some Korean websites ask for this number when you try to register.
So they can check info you gave for registration.

Mariano,
Where are you seeing the "Residence Registration Number"? I didn't see any English at all.

Great: If you think North Koreans are blogging, you need to brush up on your international affairs knowledge :)

Everyone else:
I can read Korean (with great difficulty), so if anyone has any questions....

What's somewhat interesting to me is that it didn't require a national ID number, like nearly every other Korean site out there. But Yahoo caved in long ago to the Chinese in censoring talk of Taiwan, etc., so I wouln't be surprised if they eventually require that. In the meantime, it might attract Koreans who wish to blog without using their ID number, or foreign-born Koreans (or others who can speak Korean) who want to participate in an online community in Korean.

Hou much longer before they launch one on yahoo.com ? Looks like the whole geocities craze long back will play out again with all the big portals jumping into blogging.

on August 23, 2003 09:39 AM
# Bob S said:

[sigh] Well, color me embarrassed. I just got myself a hanmail/daum account, with no National ID number.

After registering, there's a page for you to supply "additional information", all optional, including your national ID number (as well as hobbies and stuff). They don't say anything about why you might want to supply your ID. To me, it's kind of like, "if you'd like to give us your bank account number, because you love sharing information, you can do so here." Whatever.

# Simon said:

Bob

You didn't read fine prints, did u?

What they are saying is that if you want to use their financial service or use other services that
involves money ,then you have to fill that page out.

But if you just want to use mail and cafe then you don't have to fill that page out

# Vacation Korea said:

Great! Now I have to read Korean as well in order to keep up with all the blogs on the internet?

...at some point I'm going to start falling behind reading all these....

on August 23, 2003 07:20 PM
# Bob s said:

Simon,

You're talking about Daum, right? It turns out you do need the National ID Number to even set up a "Cafe". Maybe I can post in a cafe (or could, if the cafes worked in more than one kind of web browser), but I can't make my own. So it's not just money things that require it. I'm referring to http://cafe.daum.net/_c21_/cafe_make_1 .

I am glad to see Yahoo is catching up on the Blog thing. Blog isn't just a journal/log. It's all about the ease of web publishing. Over 10 years, people have been promised for a bright future of how easy to put a website together and how easy to update it. But we are simply not there.

When Yahoo bought Geocities, I bet they had the idea in mind. How about now? Yahoo pretty much ran Geocities to the ground. There was no INNOVATION for Geocities after that.

Now Yahoo has a chance to ride the next wave - blogging.

I can easily see Yahoo doing this:
- Use Geocities as a platform for user blogs. (Rename that to some new catchy domain names so people don't associate Geocities to the new one, like Bloghoo. j/k.)
- Use Yahoo mail (yes you hear me) as a publising platform. Creating a blog entry is as easy as write an email.
- Free account as banner ads, but premium users can have bigger space, more features like attaching pictures to the blog entries.
- Create a community of users who contribute templates.
- Google has bought Blogger. What about Yahoo? As far as I know, MovableType is still up for grab. :-) Yahoo would be foolish if they haven't been thinking to get MT.

Blogging getting big is not because suddenly people just become some exhibitionists, but rather it's because blogging give people the ease of expressing themselves, which is the Internet all about.

# Gyoung-Yoon Noh said:

I'm Korean. I had no problem in registering Yahoo Korea. Yahoo Korea did not require "Residence Register Number" in register form page, although so many Korean sites need it. Needless to say RRN sucks. You are not allowed to leave any comment without register/login.

There is many Blog services in Korea. But the most of them are poor in quality and so mindless. Ad banner, no RSS/trackback/ping, register/login, centralized to teenager, not-worthy reading, etc.

I recommend to visit "Weblogs In Korea(http://wik.ne.kr)", if you want to know real live blog culture of Korea. "WIK list" link will show you many Korean blogs.

# Korea.net Journalist said:

Dear Bloggers,

A Korean Residence Registration number is obtained by living in Korea and having your nationality, thus being born there or having been a certain amount of years living there.

Creating, borrowing or replicating a Korea Residence Registration number is strictly illegal. In any case, people that don't posses one shouldn't try hacking one and should move to Korea instead. Those informations can be verified, so if you fill out a form with fake IDs and a fake KRRN, you can get arrested for fraud of identity and that even if you live in another country then Korea itself.

The main reason for having Internet related products blocked by this is the Internet networks of Korea. In South Korea, the internet is at the stage of Super Broadband, meaning the majority of the population possesses super speed internet which goes over 1MB/sec. Having an outsider come in and lag would slow down the whole network since he is located far away. This is the main reason outsiders are not allowed to play on Korean servers, to maintain Super Broadband speed.

Thank you all for your understanding.
For Maple Story fans,
You can always play MapleGlobal or MapleSEA which are both in English and legally accessible to outsiders of Asia.

My Random comment:

I am an Korean-American living in the USA. And all i can say is WOW. After reading this, I see that a lot of people have similar complaints about being locked out of Korean online servers. That totally sucks. I kind of feel for everyone. I play Maple Story Global and its ok, but KMS seems to be more ahead. Thats why I can see why people feel the need to move to different servers. If thats the problem, they should update their global servers so that its equal to the audience. It's natural for a human being to feel the need for equality and no discrimination whether from different countries or culture background. o_O

To: Korea.net Journalist

I totally agree with you that illegally obtaining other Korean Resident Numbers is a bad thing because thats like illegal immigrants coming into the USA and using "fruad/fake" SS# to live and work in the USA. Anyways, Korea should make a exception policy for online people who are interested in Korean servers or come up with a better solution to help prevent people to have the urge or need to commit "resident number theft's."

Thanks for reading my thoughts.

In South Korea, every Korean resident is assigned a Resident's Registration Number(주민등록번호), which has the form 000000-0000000. The first seven digits have his/her birthday and gender, where the first six digits are in the format YYMMDD and the seventh digit is determined by the century and the gender as follows:
Male Female
1800s 9 0
1900s 1 2
2000s 3 4

(For example, a male citizen who was born in 27 May 2001 is assigned the number 010527‒3******, and a female citizen which was born in 24 March 1975 is assigned the number 750324‒2******.)

The next 4 digits mean the region of his/her birth registration, and the next 1 digit is a serial number of registration within the date and the region. The last digit is a check digit.

Koreans also use this number for banking (so if you happen to know someone else's number, go to the bank and you can steal his/her money) and for internet. For example, you're registering for a mature content site, you'll be asked to enter yours so they'll know if you deserve the content.

You can't make your own since these websites: Yahoo! KR, etc., they contact a government site to check if it's real. The name you entered should match with the numbers you entered in the other site's database.

There's a fine if you're caught stealing other's ID. And because I'm not Korean, I only have accounts in those sites you can register without this ID.

I currently have an account in

"Daum" - they called my phone and dictated korean numbers that I entered for them to verify that I'm human (maybe) or that I understand Korean. I don't know why.

"Naver" - they sent a text message to me that I entered on the page.

"Cyworld" - I clicked on "English" then I filled up the form, sent a picture of my passport to them.

uhhh u don need an ID unless you wanna game or similar, clubbox has a button for foreigners and daum, naver, etc have a button for foreigners too... Korean's arent that discriminant.. geees calm down.

Its not much use if you wanna play korean online games anyways, if your computer isnt formatted in korean, the letters wont appear, they will just be question maarks (????????????????????????????????????)

Just stay with CS, WOW and Star.. tonnes of koreans play them too....

Does anyone know how to retrieve your password for a hanmail account wihout having a Korean Registration number? My mom set one up and cannot remember for the life of her and I'm trying to find a way to retrieve that info, but it won't let me without that number. Only thing is my mom cannot locate that number since its been so long since she has had to use it. Does anyone out there know how to bypass this? Thanks in advance for your help!

Yeah, I was able to successfully create an account on daum. I want to be able to view the comics online. But I think I need to get an alien registration number to select how much I want to pay. Or maybe, I'm wrong?

Can someone PLEASE help me on this? I really want to read those comics!
