General Philatelic News

(News from 우정사업본부 / KoreaPost) KoreaPost released the 2020 publication schedule, showing all planned new stamp issues for the whole year. Several anniversaries are on the list and so are both the Korean culture and history related issues as well as Korean independence related stamps.

The publication schedule was issued in Korean on the KoreaPost website. Here is a quick translation (by KSS member Stanley Kim) of the subjects:

KoreaPost also showed this New Year’s greeting on the Kstamp blog. Notice the cute Korean language joke using the Korean word for mouse as part of conjugation of the verb:
