    It is Susha coreana (Matsumura, 1927). In Korea, this species occurs in September to October. South Korean name ‘늦털매미’ means ‘late hairy cicada’, which represents occuring season and morphological character.

    There are 13 cicada species in Korea. (after Lee, 1999) I’ll update the catalog of Korean species. It will be helpful to yours.
