Sailor Moon in Korea refers to the adaptation of Sailor Moon in South Korea. The Korean title is "Darui Yojeong Seileo Mun" (달의 요정 세일러문; Lunar Fairy Sailor Moon).


KBS Dub[edit]

163 episodes of the anime were broadcast in South Korea from April 1, 1997 until June 11, 1998.

Censorship and Changes[edit]

  • Due to South Korea's ban on Japanese imports at the time, all Japanese cultural references, including names and attacks, were removed from the Korean version.
  • Japanese words shown on screen were erased, but not replaced with anything else; papers and signs shown on screen were simply left blank.
  • Some transformation sequences were altered to use footage from previously used transformation sequences and the first opening of the R season, and scenes with nudity were removed.
  • The entire Amazon Trio arc was removed, which required editing some footage into the remaining episodes of the SuperS season.
  • Zoisite remained male, but all the romance scenes with Kunzite were removed completely.
  • In episode 200, Sarah was edited to look like she was wearing a white bodysuit.
  • All scenes showing the Hikawa Shrine were cut, and all episodes with a significant amount of time spent there were omitted from the dub.
  • Scenes where characters kissed were removed completely.

Daewon Broadcasting Dub[edit]

In 2012, a new Korean dub of Sailor Moon produced by Daewon Broadcasting (대원방송) began airing on two channels, CHAMP TV (챔프TV) and ANIONE (애니원). As of 2016, all 200 episodes have been broadcast, including the movies and specials.

This dub retained the Korean civilian names and most attack names from the KBS dub, but most censorship was removed. Japanese cultural references and most of the writing were kept, but some episodes had the writing replaced with Korean text. Transformation sequences were originally uncensored, but beginning with episode 100, all Senshi transformations except for Sailor Moon's were cut to remove nudity. In episode 151, clothing was drawn over Sailor Mercury to cover her body. In episode 200, Sailor Moon's nudity was hidden with white light. Most of the original songs were dubbed into Korean, including "Moonlight Densetsu" and songs sung during episodes. Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune's relationship also remained unchanged in the dub.

The viewer rating for the dub depended on the season. The first season was rated 7+, Sailor Moon R and Sailor Moon S were both rated 12+, Sailor Moon SuperS and Sailor Stars were rated 15+.
