Will the power plug in Korea be compatible with my plug?


This is Loah’s dad.

“Will the power plug in Korea be compatible with my plug?”

Today, I suddenly remembered a problem I had when I traveled to Europe and Japan in the past.

The charger plugs I brought from home didn’t fit well when I traveled.

Nowadays, it’s easier to get multi-adapters, so it’s more convenient,

Just in case anyone is wondering what plugs are used in Korea!

These are the plugs and outlets in Loah’s house.

They are internationally recognized as Type F.

They are compatible with most countries in Europe.

I unplugged the fan and took a picture.

It’s a type F.

South Korea, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Austria, Netherlands, Norway, Finland, Portugal, Russia, North Korea, Mongolia, Bhutan, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Iran, Finland, Indonesia, Iran, Italy, Macau, Monaco, Netherlands, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, Uruguay, etc.

These are the compatible countries.

I don’t need a multi-adapter~.

Korea is 220v

Usually use 60Hz.

Unless it’s something really important, try to buy it from Korea. Even if it’s 220v and the right type, different Hz can be a bit bad for your device.

South Korea is full of stores that sell cheap, useful things called “daiso”.

Daiso has a huge selection of household items.

They sell practical and useful items for between 1000 and 5000 Korean won.

We’ll talk more about daisos later.

Inside, you’ll find a variety of household goods at a good price.

You can easily get multi-adapters and more here.

I’m not going to explain Daiso today, so I’ll leave it at that.

Let’s finish with a quick look at plugs from around the world.


There are 15 different shapes for electrical outlets and sockets that are internationally standardized by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). Each shape is represented by an alphabet, with types A through O. Some are interchangeable.

Type A: A two-pin type, used in the United States, Japan, Mexico, and elsewhere.

Type B: Similar to Type A, but with an additional ground pin; used in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and elsewhere.

Type D: A three-pin type, used in countries like India, Hong Kong, and Bangladesh.

Type E: A two-pin type, used in countries like France, Belgium, and Poland.

Type F: A two-pin type, used in Germany, Spain, Sweden, and other countries.

Today, I suddenly remembered about plugs, so I thought I’d put together a post.

It’s mid-July in Korea and it’s the rainy season.

It’s raining a lot.

Please check out my explanation of the weather in Korea


Korea has four distinct seasons: spring, summer, fall, and winter, so you need to keep an eye on the weather.

It’s raining so hard it’s hard to walk around!
