A number of exchanges based in that nation will be affected.  These include Bithumb, Coinone, and Korbit.  Banks offering confirmation include Shinhan Bank, Korea Development Bank, and Industrial Bank of Korea.

The AFP reported:

The Prime Minister’s Office said Seoul would ban financial institutions from dealing in virtual currencies – including buying, possessing, or holding them as collateral.

Banks that provide virtual bank accounts for cryptocurrency trades will have to verify the identification of account holders when creating new ones.  Likewise, foreigners and minors will not be permitted to trade in crypto-currency in Korea.
