Step 1

Step 5
    • STEP 5: Choose “None” as your payment method
      • Note: To purchase a soribada or genie pass you need to turn back to your own  country’s app store after downloading Korean apps to add your payment method, if you try to add a payment method that is not a  Korean credit/debit card or any payment method from Korea, you will not be able to proceed.


STEP 5.2: The next step is the address. You may write your own street address, but you must put a Korean City, County, and Zip Code that you can find on google if the ones below (see STEP 5.2) do not work for you. Don’t forget to add a cellphone or telephone number, it does not have to be a Korean number but it is necessary. Click Next.
