Korea Post is a national logistics company responsible for postal services, as well as some insurance services. The post is managed by the Ministry of Science, Information and Communication Technology. The headquarters of the post office is located in Sejong.
The development of Korean mail service is lost for centuries. An analogue of the postal or courier service has existed throughout the history of Korea, starting from the era when a united state did not yet exist. The new period of Korea Post have begun in the 1880s thanks to one man named Yon-Sik Hon. In front of Seoul's largest post office there is a well-deserved monument erected on November 18, 2012 in his honor as the founder of the Korean post. In 1883, Yon-Sik Hon traveled around the United States, studying the experience of USPS, the state postal service. After returning to Korea, he convinced King Kodjon of the importance of a modern postal system, which led in 1884 to the creation of the Korean Post Office. Yon-Sik Khon was appointed general postmaster. On the first floor of the “Postal Tower”, the main office of Korea Post, there is an invisible museum of postage stamps, which is free of charge for visiting. Korea's first postage stamps were printed on November 18, 1884.
