    Hey there!! Does anyone by any chance know how investing work in korea? In my homecountry I used to make investments and I would like to know about how it works here in Korea too since I heard it’s a little bit different… is there any good youtube channel or blog where I can find information about it?

    I also want to know about it. But I asked some questions about it to my boyfriend, and he said that here the income system looks a bit like our “conta poupança” in Brazil, but at the same time, it seems to me that it yields a little more than in Brazil. If I find something that better informs this, I’ll let you know.

    As a Foreigner you are allowed to invest in the Korean market without almost any restrictions. Only exceptions are a small number of companies and some industries (such as aviation and broadcasting) where there are limits that can apply up to 50%.

    As far as I know you might need a IRC (Investor Registration Cert.) don’t quote me on this one but I heard depends on the sort of investment you do in order to make transactions through your broker, have a cash account and safekeep, you “should” have one. There is a lot of grey area in the investment realm and foreigners. So I suggest you do a lot of research on your own.

    Some Youtube Channels are very helpful but all are in korean with no subs.

    Also if you are into high risk investments you might want to know that after an IPO, there will be a lock-up period is applied to prevent the largest shareholders and affiliated persons from making unfair capital gains once the shares are listed.

    Some more info about these I listed it bellow:
