Tsushima Island, Japan, as well as South Korea; the status of populations in North Korea remains unstudied. 


See comment under Rana dybowskii with which this species was long confused and for which the assignment of populations in North Korea remain problematic due to lack of material. Yang, Zhou, Min, Matsui, Dong, Li, and Fong, 2017, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 112: 148–157, reported on the molecular phylogenetics and biogeography of this species within the Rana dybowskii species complex. Song, Chang, and Chung, 2005, Korean J. Environment. Biol., 23: 157–162, compared this Korean frog (as Rana dybowskii) to the other Brown Frogs in Korea and Rana tsishimensis
