Just noticed the description for these new DPRK stamps: "A sheetlet was issued to reflect some sports events." They really ran out of inspiration there... Whatever happened to the guys who came up with "turning Seoul in a sea of blood"?! #Stamps #Philately #우표취미 #우표

Ever wondered what to do with surplus stamps? Here is one way to get rid of them: burn them! From Gyeonggi-do (Korea), 10 November 1976. #Stamps #Philately #우표취미 #우표 #revenuestamps #수입증지

South Korea has done remarkably well during the COVID-19 crisis (look at the statistics!). Which might explain the very happy image KoreaPost shows in this month's "wallpaper". But, is that girl running with a pet sheep...? #Stamps #Philately #우표취미 #우표

Don't know Korean but want to know a philatelic term? See the new Korean Philately magazine for the Korean - English philatelic glossary ! Free download from the KSS website.

Let us tell you a little secret: there is no way of knowing whether this is a "real proof" or a "fake proof"... The DPRK KSC often produced "proofs" years after the fact. Official fakes? Official proof reprints? Who knows? #Stamps #Philately #우표취미 #우표

A Korean International Reply Coupon (IRC) from 1951 for 200 won. This is the old won, from pre-hwan and new won times. Due to high inflation the international value was actually quite low. IRCs still exist, but who uses them these days...? #Stamps #Philately #우표취미 #우표

Interesting promise: "liberation". Unfortunately the year of liberation also became the year of separation for Korea... From USPS 1944 Overrun Nations series. #Stamps #Philately #우표취미 #우표
