Yes! I have just done this recently since I was teaching in sk last year. You need to call the south Korean embassy in your country (mine is australia). The way it worked for me is they emailed me the form and instructions, I had to fill out the form and get it notarized by a notary public officer, then I sent the form to the Korean embassy in Australia, they stamped in and sent it back to me. Theeeeeeen I sent it to the national police agency in Seoul by recorded post. I am now waiting for them to send me my certificate in the mail in the next few weeks. Basically, call the Korean embassy. Good thing is it doesn't cost anything to get, apart from the postage and notaries.

Police Records

Korean National Police Certificate (Crime-Investigation History Report: Bomjoi-Soosa Kyongreok Johoi Hoiboseo) is available to visa applicants of any nationality who are physically present in South Korea. The new KNPC now includes all serious crimes since 1945, regardless of expungement benefits under Korean law, and misdemeanors for five years, according to the Individual Information Protection Law of March 2003.

Applicants presently in Korea: Foreign nationals, regardless of visa status, and Korean citizens must apply in person at any local police station. The KNP checks non-Koreans according to the requestor's Korean alien registration card or passport. Korean citizens must show a Korean identity card with the Korean citizen's unique, lifetime Korean identification number, which is found on Korean national identity cards and Korean passports adjacent to the applicant's name. KNP processing is no fee and takes less than one hour. The new KNPC bears a red ink half inch square stamp on the bottom containing the Korean characters for National Police. It is issued in Korean only and applicants must attach a complete English translation, certified as true and correct by anyone competent in Korean and English, for the visa interview. A simple computer printout of criminal records is issued with the Korean annotation for information only, has no red ink stamp and is not a KNPC for visa purposes.

Applicants outside of Korea: Unavailable.

Korean National Police Certificate

Korean National Police Certificate (KNPC: Crime-Investigation History Report (범죄경력 수사경력 회보서) is available to all visa applicants of any nationality who are physically present in South Korea by applying directly at any Korean national police (KNP) station for his/her whole criminal and investigation history including expunged records. The KNP checks non-Koreans according to the requestor’s Korean alien registration card or passport. Korean citizens must show a Korean identity card (Jumindeungnokjeung주민등록증) or a Korean passport. There is no fee for KNPC processing and it takes less than 24 hours.

KNPC is issued in Korean only and applicants must attach a complete English translation. KNPC is unavailable to applicants outside of Korea.

If your KNPC contains any adverse information, you must bring the full related court record and English translation with your KNPC to your visa interview.

This, along with what has been mentioned and the link to the other thread. Apparently, there are ways to work around the requirement of being physically present in SK when obtaining your police certificate.

That's fine. The question was about obtaining the certificate IN South Korea. Whether or not that is what the OP meant, it is undetermined. In any case, this is information from the US websites with the second one being fairly new. This is the policy under most circumstances. As I mentioned, there are ways to get it without being present. It is simply foolish to disregard all relevant information.

The U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Consular Affairs website and Consular Post websites are the definitive sources of visa information. Should there be discrepancies in content, the Consular Affairs website and Consular Post websites take precedence

From what I read in the other person's post. It can take 4-6 weeks.
