Amid escalating tensions between India and China, the Indian government on Wednesday announced the ban of 118 applications in the country. The list included the names of two of the most famous battle royale games on the mobile platform – PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite. Since the announcement, players have been desperately looking for alternatives for the games.

PUBG Mobile Korea is one of the most popular alternative versions of PUBG Mobile. Since it was not included in the list of apps that were banned, players are now looking for a way to download the game. However, PUBG Mobile Korea is only available in the Play Store of the Korea and Japan region.

It is important to note that the game is published by the PUBG Corporation (South Korea) and not Tencent, which published the Indian and Chinese version of the game. It is a subsidiary of the Krafton Game union.

In this article, we tell you how players have found loopholes in the 118 app ban list to continue their love for the game, PUBG Mobile.

Is the PUBG Mobile Korean version legal?

Since the PUBG Mobile Korean version was not announced as part of the 118 apps and games banned list, the game is still legal to play in India. Banning the game could be a tricky affair for the Indian government, as the Korean version is only available for the Google Play Store editions of Japan and South Korea.

Even the Tap Tap store has not been banned by the Ministry of Information and Technology, making it the only legal PUBG Mobile version that can still be played in India.

Naturally, devoted players have exploited the loophole to register millions of downloads on the Tap Tap store. However, it is crucial to note that, the PUBG Mobile KR version is likely to stop working as the server of PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile KR are the same, since they support cross-play online.

The internal details of the server are not available to the public, so nothing can be said about future availability of the game.
