Effective on August 1, 2015, South Korea’s existing 6-digit postal codes have been replaced with a new set of 5-digit postal codes. As a result, the new GAV tables will change to the new format and TSS will convert the 6-digit postal codes to the 5-digit postal codes in order to facilitate a smooth transition.

When you use the new table, you will see the following differences in the output attributes:

  • Postal codes will be updated to the new 5-digit format.

  • The pr_level3 attribute will be blank for major cities. Provinces and other areas will still receive pr_level3 if applicable.

  • Street name will be filled in the pr_level4 attribute.

  • All grid type (block/bunji) attributes will be blank. Those attributes are:

    • pr_block_number

    • pr_block_number_display_full

    • pr_sub_block_number
