I moved to Korea temporarily and i want to play LoL with my korean friends who just started. I want to play on the korean servers, but when I tried to dl the korean client I needed the korean version of a social security number or something called a "i-pin" i definitely dont have the first one and I have no idea what the second one is...
it would be really convinient to download the korean client as opposed to my friends all downloading the NA client...so if anyone knows any solutions plz respond!

If its anything like monster hunter frontier.(f2p mmo that is availble in korean format, and korean format requires you to have the korean citizenship IE social insurance number.)
You are **** outta luck.

I think they require proof of you being a citizen or something in order for you to make an account.

Its the same thing here in china, you have to have a QQ number which is registered to their national id number.

My friends and I where able to play b/c we met locals that were willing to share a list of numbers that we could use to set up an account.

There are "ways" to be able to play Korean games, it's just... kind of illegal.

Yeah if you are not a Korean citizen but you are a legal resident of Korea, you can register for an i-pin with your resident registration number. Here is the link.

If you are ethnic Korean but you don't live in Korea (ie. 쿄&#54252 you may also be able to apply for an i-pin but I have no idea how. If that is the case for you perhaps you should phone The Ministry of Public Administration and Security and ask them.
