GMT (and the time servers) don't change for the whims of politicians. Use any server at all.
Your distro will include a package to account for local changes - you choose which timezone to use as part of your (specific) configuration.

Hi,

Have a look here: NTP Pool

Select the geographic area you are in (Active Servers - Top right) and pick one (or more).

Hope this helps.

Hi,

If you are from Korea (or more precise: your server is situated in Korea) then I guess a server from, or close to Korea would be the correct choice.....
