According to The Korean Herald, Financial Services Commission plans to allow banks to operate nonfinancial services such as food delivery via their mobile apps. South Korean major financial regulator is going to implement it after the revision of its financial regulatory system in July 2021.

Discussions and research are underway to expand the platform business in the finance sector next year. Even before the regulatory reform takes effect next year, (the FSC) is planning to help financial companies develop platform-based innovative services by temporarily easing related regulationsrn

Besides, the authority will enable more financial institutions to set up “open banking” services. This way, customers will be able to manage accounts at multiple financial entities through a single mobile financial app.
