  • Property Type: Enforcement Decree of the Building Act Appendix 1 (MOLEG)
  • Business Type: Business Code - 10th Korean Standard Industrial Classification (NTS)
Notes
  1. 'Yeogwan' and 'Yeoinsuk' were integrated into 'Lodging Business' in August 1999 when the "Public Health Act" was replaced by the "Public Health Control Act", and in January 2012, the 'Lodging Business' was divided into 'General Lodging Business' and 'Residential Lodging Business'. In the "Building Act", in May 2013, 'Yeogwan' and 'Yeoinsuk' were integrated into 'General Lodging Property' and 'Residential Lodging Property' was added. In the "10th Standard Industrial Classification", 'Yeogwan' has been used so far, and 'General Lodging Business' and 'Residential Lodging Business' are not separated. In the "Business Code", 'Yeogwan' and 'Yeoinsuk' have been used so far, and 'General Lodging Business' and 'Residential Lodging Business' are not separated. Given the fact that there are many lodging establishments that opened as 'Yeogwan' or 'Yeoinsuk' before 1999 and are still open to date, Lobin's classification of lodging establishment types is based on the "Business Code" to account for the situation at the time.
  2. Gosiwon with the floor area greater than or equal to 500㎡. (If the floor area is less than 500㎡, the facility will be classified as a 'Neighborhood Living Property' instead of a 'Lodging Property')
  3. 'Multi-family housing' for 'dormitory' means the dormitory among multi-family housing, while it means 'apartment', townhouse' or 'multiplex housing' among multi-family housing for 'shared lodging' and 'urban minbak'.
  4. 'Single-family house' for 'rural minbak', 'shared lodging', and 'urban minbak' and means 'single-family house' or 'multi-household house'. (excluding 'multi-family house')
  5. 'Shared lodging' is not listed in the "10th Korean Standard Industrial Classification", but listed in the "Business Code" as a sub-category of 'general and residential lodging business'. However, the designated 'use of building' is either 'single-family house' or 'multi-family housing', which is identical to 'urban minbak, and does not correspond to 'dormitory and gosiwon business'. The business type is moved to 'minbak business' from 'general and residential lodging business' in Lobin's lodging establishment types.
  6. 'Campsite' is not listed in the "10th Korean Standard Industrial Classification", but listed in the "Business Code" as a sub-category of 'other general and residential lodging business'. However, "Enforcement Decree of the Building Act Appendix 1" specifically identifies the use of building for this as the 'campsite property' with a note that campsites not qualifying this will fall under the 'training property'. The business type is moved to 'other lodging business' from 'other general and residential lodging business' in Lobin's lodging establishment types.
  7. 'Open use' means the cases that, among 'tourist businesses' listed in "Enforcement Decree of the Tourism Promotion Act", the use of buildings functioning as a lodging establishment is not specified in the law.
  8. 'Forest retreat' includes 'retreat forest' and 'arboretum'.
※ The classification of ‘lodging establishments’ is not a statutory classification system, but a system developed by Lobin for the purpose of efficient data processing and utlization.
