New address system
To put the name into address search bar
111동 204호 for second address input section.
111 is complex building number
204 is room number for example.
Your APT complex number
+ your apt number
So now you know how to sign up on online shopping mall in Korea.
It’s same for almost all online shopping malls.
You can see my online email receipt I got from Naver shopping today here.
So official address for Pyeongtaek Brownstone Humphreys are
1. New address system address
경기도 평택시 팽성읍 신흥북로49번길 27
평택 브라운스톤 험프리스
Zip code: 17977
2. Old address system address
경기도 평택시 팽성읍 안정리 360
Zip code: 451-807
When I give address to taxi driver or friend or visitor, I give old system address.
평택시 팽성읍 안정리 360
Because old address is shorter to input when they have to type in. Taxi driver has to type complex new address system. :))
But for Pyeongtaek area’s taxi driver knows Brown Stone APT usually if visitors are coming from Pyeongtaek station to take a cab.
So you can usually just say “Brown Stone” at taxi stand in Pyeongtaek station.
Then they all knew “Pyeongtaek Brownstone Humphreys APT” in my experience.
other expat friends, Korean friends also came over by taxi over here too with no problem usually. They didn’t have to have a full official address but it is handy just in case.
🙂 I hope this solves mystery. :))
To me, also it took awhile to figure out which name is official to input on search address box for online shopping mall or for GPS.
P.S. My house was right next to the main gate so that was enough.
But for other buildings…it would be better to give full complex building number for taxi FYI. 🙂
