New address system in Korea : 2 more years

As we saw earlier, the Korean address system will undergo a spectacular reform as of January 1, 2012 (see "The Great Korean Revolution : addresses with house numbers and street names").

The old method was to be dumped at the same date, but obviously not everyone was ready. So the Government eventually decided to postpone to 2014 the end of the "dong" / "beonji" system*, which will then cohabit two more years.

The best is to keep both addresses on your name cards for the time being (I opted for the new one followed by the old one between brackets).
