Since the legislation of spectrum auction in 2011, three auctions have been implemented to achieve policy objectives of the Korean government. I explore what are the issues of spectrum assignment of each auction, how each auction was designed to resolve the issue, and what implications are derived from each. I believe that spectrum auction has successfully allocated spectrum by market mechanism, where operators express their true willingness to pay for the spectrum blocks. Even though there are challenges to overcome, spectrum auction has become a stable mechanism and will be expected work well for future events.

Keywords: spectrum auction, simultaneous multiple round ascending auction
