Korea country

The database has North Korea and South Korea, but also Korea.

Korea is blocked in the submission form as country of origin for titles made after 1948. It is listed for some recent titles, probably because it was added while there was no year attached. Perhaps it should be caught during processing.

But I noticed that Korea is also added on images, and my deletions of it were rejected. Is this meaningful? Can these additions be blocked, or can deletions at least be allowed?

It may not even be a fault of contributors actually. For example, recently I added a "South Korea" country tag to a poster from 2021 South Korea series, when it was approved, it only appeared as "Korea", not "South Korea" like how I added it.

Obviously the editor (or software or whatever it is) modified it during approval process. No idea why they decided my submission was not good enough and just "Korea" is better for a 2021 TV Series.

Hi @mbmb -

Can you post the 18-digit submission reference number associated with this Poster country tag?

@Michelle Yes, it's this: 211109-230532-581002

when I view the submission I can see that I definitely submitted it correctly as South Korea but for some reason it went into effect as only Korea as you can see from image page.

Hi Peter_pbn -

I have now removed the country "Korea" for these images and the listing should be removed shortly.

Regarding the ability to submit the country "Korea" on images for titles released after 1948, I have filed a ticket for the appropriate team for visibility and to review for improvements.

It is listed for some recent titles, probably because it was added while there was no year attached.

If it's technically possible, perhaps the country Korea should also be blocked for titles that have no year listed.
