Korean universities didn’t place high in global rankings but it’s more on a flaw (disadvantage for universities that don’t use global languages, e.g. English as major communication) in the methodology instead of the quality of the institutions.

The universities in the list are well recognized in Korea so it’s still a worthy reference, although Yonsei and Korea University won’t be happy with their places.
