South Korea

South Korea uses Korea Standard Time KST. KST is UTC +0900. South Korea’s latitude and longitude is 37° 33′ N and 126° 58′ E. Therefore being nine hours ahead of UTC is a bit much for South Korea but not unsuitable. Considering its high latitude one would expect that the country has a small use for daylight savings time but DST isn’t observed in South Korea.
