  • Hi…
    I’m learning Korean and very much would like to read the paid webtoons from daum in Korean. How do i pay for the service? I have a kakao account that is linked to daum. I currently live in Australia and hold a credit card and paypal account.


    • Hi Carla! Thanks for supporting Daum Webtoon! Unfortunately, making any kind of online purchases in Korea requires, by law, a verification process. For this process, you will likely need a phone serviced by a Korean telecom company and a Korean credit card. Very sorry about that. However Daum Webtoon does constantly update content that you can enjoy for free, so make sure to check in often. Cheers~
