The history behind South Korean phone numbers
The history of South Korea's phone numbers can be traced back to the early 20th century. The first telephone exchange was established in Seoul in 1885, during the Joseon Dynasty. However, telephone service did not become widely available until after the Korean War in the 1950s.
In the early days, phone numbers in South Korea consisted of three to four digits. As the number of phone users grew, the system was expanded to six digits in the 1960s. In 1984, the current 10-digit phone number system was introduced, which includes a three-digit area code followed by a seven-digit local number.
In 1999, South Korea introduced the "010" prefix for mobile phone numbers, which was later expanded to include "011," "016," "017," "018," and "019" prefixes. This allowed for more mobile phone numbers to be assigned as the popularity of mobile phones grew.
In 2002, the South Korean government began to assign phone numbers based on geographic regions, with the first two digits of the area code representing the province or metropolitan area. This system was introduced to help manage the growing number of phone users and to make it easier to identify where calls were coming from.
Technical info on South Korean phone numbers
South Korean phone numbers typically consist of ten digits, with the first three digits representing the area code. The country code for South Korea is +82, which is often written as 0082 or 01182 when dialing from outside the country. The second digit in the phone number indicates the service provider, and the remaining seven digits are unique to the individual phone number.
South Korea uses a system of mobile phone numbers that are linked to an individual's resident registration number, which is a unique identifier issued by the government. This system is designed to prevent fraud and ensure the safety of personal information.
