Binance Exchange announced to close following these services for crypto traders of Korea. 

  • KRW trading pairs
  • KRW payment options

  • Support in Korean language on the Binance website 

The Exchange is doing this change because of the rules of Korean regulators. The local regulatory authority of Korea raised issues on these services.
