    You will have trouble at many sites if you are a foreigner, because the foreigners' numbers are "위국인 등룩번호"s which means foreigner registration number. Many websites do not recognize these numbers and thus will not accept them. If you need to order something and the site does not accept your number, go through a korean friend. You can usually pay with your (korean) credit card even though you are using a friend's number.

    It's for varification (that you're really YOU, and not someone else is trying to be a fraud) and to stop multiple accounts. The 주민등록번호 must match your name.
