P.O. Boxes (사서함) exist in Korea and they are administered by the local post offices.
Mailboxes are usually used by large entities such as corporations, big hospitals or broadcasting companies such as MBC, KBS, or SBS that receive too much mail/packages for mail carriers to handle. People who reside in areas where there is no mail delivery or who are in areas that are inaccessible to mail carriers, such as military bases, prisons, etc. As a result, even in post offices where postal boxes exist, there are often none available.

Normally, one checks with one’s local post office to see if there are mailboxes available. It is possible to rent a Post Office box in a post office outside one’s neighbourhood. The larger post offices are the most likely to offer mail boxes.

K4E lists some of the post offices in Seoul (address and telephone number) on our Mail Delivery-Post Offices page: Jongno-gu, Mapo-gu, Seodaemun-gu, Seongbuk-gu and Yongsan-gu. Post offices in other areas of the city and around the country can be found on the Korea Post website. Click on Location Finder (to the left of the home page). The information in the Location Finder is mainly in Korean but if you click on the city/district, the address is often given in English as well as Korean.

Most P.O. boxes in Seoul are free but in some other cities, Daejeon for example, there is a small monthly rental fee.

If you don’t speak Korean, you may want to arrange for a friend or colleague to help you communicate with your local post office. (Note that there is no policy of having bilingual staff in areas with a large foreign population, but there often happen to be English-speakers in post offices in those and other areas.)
