A common name in Korean language.

Note that this tag is useful when object has names specified in more than one language:

  • If name=* is in Korean then it specifies which language is used in main name tag
  • If name=* is in a different language then it specifies name in Korean


North and South Korea may use different words or use different notations. Use the local language as the default('name:ko=*'), but use it to identify words or notations from other regions if they are different. (E.g. 'name:en=elementary school' / 'name:en=Ryugyong Hotel')

  • name:ko-kr=* : E.g. 'name:ko-kr=초등학교' / 'name:ko-kr=유경호텔'
  • name:ko-kp=* : E.g. 'name:ko-kp=인민학교' / 'name:ko-kp=류경호텔'
