Traveling to Korea with birth control pills

I'm going to stay in South Korea for 6 months and I'm going to take my birth control for that period of time (2 boxes with 3 blisters each). I'm going to bring a medical declaration with me, so my question is: do I need to tell the customs (in person or through the Traveler Declaration Form) or can I simply walk through the door "nothing to declare"?

Thank you

You will be fine walking through with nothing to declare.

Birth control pills are completely legal in South Korea, so there is no more problem going through Customs than you would have with aspirin.

You would run into trouble only if you tried to bring in something that is illegal or heavily controlled in South Korea. (That is true of any country.)

You'll be fine. They won't bat a lash at birth control pills.

It's for controlling your acne problem?
