Reasons to get a Korean IP address
Watch South Korean streaming networks
If you try to access South Korea streaming services outside the country you are most likely to be blocked. Websites check your IP to find out where you are before granting the access, and if you don’t have a Korean IP address you will be banned. This problem is known as Geo-Blocking, its primary idea is to limit non-domestic connection in order to protect distribution rights and maximise the revenue. The way to bypass regional restrictions is to connect to VPN and choose the South Korean location. AdGuard VPN offers high-speed connection and increased security of your personal traffic so you can stream SpoTV or Netflix in high quality. Watch your favourite K-Drama and don’t wait for the release. For gamers we also have great news: you can watch League of Legends tournaments live now. Isn’t that nice?
Banking/social accounts – safe access worldwide
You are abroad and need to make some operations in your banking account: send money to your friends/relatives, pay monthly installments or other important bills. Very often you need to have a South Korean IP to make bank transfers. AdGuard VPN offers the solution: connect your device to a VPN server located in South Korea. It will automatically hide your current ISP and show a Korean IP instead. Moreover, no one will be able to track your online activity and spy on you: neither provider nor the government. There are plenty of data-harvesters and internet frauds out there, most of the times when you join public networks – an airport Wi-Fi, for example.

Does VPN reduce connection speed?
Only sometimes. And not drastically. In fact, connection speed depends on a ping rate. The lower the better. By the way, in AdGuard VPN you can see ping rates right next to the location. Pretty convenient, huh? Also with the pro version you will have an unlimited bandwidth.
Why would I want a different IP Address?
Plenty reasons: to avoid surveillance, browse anonymously or bypass geo-restrictions. Stay safe online whether in or outside South Korea!
Is VPN legal in South Korea?
Yes sure! In South Korea it is completely legal to use VPN. No Korean law prohibits usage of VPN. However if you are abusing VPN to perform illegal activities you still become a subject to prosecution.
