* The Korea Fund, Inc has utilized a different methodology than third party service providers to account for the $90.30 capital gain distribution that was declared on December 22, 2008 and paid on January 29, 2009. Consequently the Fund is reporting different performance data for December 2008 and January 2009. Net asset value total returns for all periods that include December 2008 or January 2009 have been calculated assuming that the capital gain distribution was paid entirely in newly issued Fund shares priced at the Fund’s net asset value at the close of business on January 26, 2009 (the “Pricing Date”). In addition, the NAV for December 31, 2008 has been adjusted for purposes of calculating performance to reflect the actual number of shares outstanding on that date whereas the published NAV for December 31, 2008 was calculated based on an estimate made on December 31, 2008 of the number of shares to be issued in the distribution. For additional information, please see the press release dated October 12, 2009, which is available at under News and Press Releases.
