Each visa application will be considered on its own merits.
A Singapore visa is not an immigration pass. It is a pre-entry permission for the holder of a valid Singapore visa holder to travel to, and seek entry into Singapore. The grant of an immigration pass will be determined by the Immigrations & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) officers at the point of entry. Possession of a valid visa alone does not guarantee entry into Singapore.
The period of stay granted is shown on the visit pass endorsement given on your e-Pass/passport and it is not tied to the validity of your visa.
Holders of Special Travel Documents
All holders of Special Travel Documents are to consult the Singapore Embassy in Seoul on visa requirements if they wish to visit Singapore.
