Despite both regional and international attempts at harmonisation and unification of private international law, new national codifications are still being adopted. The article draws attention to some selected issues of the new Czech Private International Law Act that reflect modern trends in private international law, providing a comparative analysis of the respective rules in the codification of South Korea. Both countries, the Czech Republic and the Republic of Korea have modern private international law codifications: the current Korean Act on Private International Law was adopted and became effective in 2001, replacing its predecessor which had been adopted in 1962 and was considered outdated. The Czech Republic adopted its new Act on Private International Law in 2012, effective as of 2014.
