The telephone country code for South Korea is +82, and you must also drop the trunk prefix 0 from the South Korean domestic telephone number, so a mobile number beginning with 01 changes to +82 1. Most mobile phones will allow you to enter telephone numbers in international format, beginning with the plus symbol.
