"Foreign Cards in ATM's" South Korea Favorite Tip by DSwede
South Korea General: 192 reviews and 165 photos
Favorite thing: Foreign cards are taken at ~half of ATM's in the city. And I guarantee there will be machines at the airport that will accept your card. But just be forewarned that it may not be the first machine, so try again and don't give up hope.
Honestly speaking, if you go into a convenience store and it has a "Cash Zone" ATM, you card should work just fine.
Of the banks, the bigger the branch the better as some small branches do not have "global services" ATM's. Best shot for always getting cash is for going to a KEB (Korean Exchange Bank), and looking in the row of machines for the ones labeled "global ATM".
At other ATM's your card may or may not work. I have yet to find any real rhyme or reason to it.
