Slow Letter Service - South Korea



On the 2nd basement level of the Seoul Central Post Office is the Stamp Museum. Here, you can see an Interesting post box called " Slow Letters". If you put a letter addressed to any place in South Korea in this post box, it will delivered one year later free of charge.

This service was initially intended to be a one- time online event but this idea was instant hit that Korea Post made it a permanent offline service.

The museum is in Myeongdong in Seoul & this service is intended to remind people of the value of taking time in this age of never ending rush to get things done and also the value of letters as a means of sharing heartwarming messages.
