Thank you, Excellencies, you keep The Korea Post ticking and growing

I express my deepest gratitude to the Excellencies and other distinguished readers for their kind renewing of their annual subscription to The Korea Post.

The Korea Post magazine, English and Korean Internet dailies and this e-daily are published solely with revenues from subscription and advertisement.

The subscription rate has not been raised since 2008 when it was last updated to the present rate, and this is the last chance for subscription to the old rates as they will have to be raised soon due to the continuously rising prices of commodities and other charges.

Name of Bank: Kookmin Bank
