Description
With the adjustment in the postal rates effective as of January 15, 2002, new definitives will be issued as follows: 160-won definitives for non-priority postcards (under 5g), 210-won definitives for non-priority mail (under 50g), 280-won definitives for nonstandard non-priority mail, 1,290-won definitives for registered mail (under 25g) and 1,310-won definitives for registered mail (under 50g). The basic 190-won definitives for non-priority mail (under 25g) now in use will continue to be used.

The 280-won definitives feature the Ficedula zanthopygia. This summer bird found across the nation belongs to the family of Daurian redstarts. It resembles the narcissus flycatcher except that its eyebrows are white. Its body stretches 11 cm in length. It takes up nest in holes in trees or in artificial nest boxes and lay 5 to 6 eggs at a time.
