Description
According to the change of domestic postal rates on September 1, 1997, the Ministry of Information and Communication is issuing four new definitive postage stamps. The first is for 140 won for ordinary postcards, another is for 260won, the basic rate for pieces of nonstandard ordinary mail weighing less than 50g, another is for 1,170 won, the basic rate for registered ordinary mail weighing less than 25g, and the last is for 1,190 won, the basic rate for registered ordinary mail weighing less than 50g.

The 140-won definitive stamp for postcards retains the existing Narcissus design, as used since it was first issued on August 20, 1994. Only the denomination and the background color are changed.
