From the box (not pictured):
The M Perfect Cover BB Cream makes your skin tone clean and natural by concealing blemishes with excellent skin coverage. It is a multi functional makeup cream with blocking UV rays, whitening and wrinkle care effects and simplifies makeup formalities. Its moisturized application with sleek W/S texture makes sleek skintone by supplying moisture and nutrition at the same time. 

Directions: after basic skin care, apply an appropriate amount along the skin texture and finish with powder. Do not need to apply Sun cream in addition.

SPF (Sun Protection Factor): SPF of the product is measured by test methods of KFDA (Korean Food & Drug Administration).

As you can see, this product contains mineral oil and also two forms of parabens. I know that either (or both) can be a deal-breaker for some, so I want to be sure you're aware of that. Thankfully, I've never had any issues with mineral oil in my skincare (I know a lot of people are sensitive/prone to breakouts if they use products containing mineral oil) but I do wish this formula was paraben-free. I've heard that other Missha BB creams formulas are paraben-free and I'd love to try one of those in the future.

As for SPF, I don't know the percentages of active ingredients, but if we're to assume that the order of ingredients above go from highest to lowest, then there appears to be a good deal of both ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate and zinc oxide in this formula (both of those ingredients act as UV filters).

Note: the $12 tube is the smallest tube available on the Missha website. It's a little under 1 oz, which is the size of most US BB creams such as the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Creamand L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream. You can also purchase a larger tube (1.69 oz) which retails for $22 on the Missha website. Missha also has many other BB creams for sale on their site, but I chose Perfect Cover for two reasons: it's Missha's most popular formula, and it was also easily available at a local Asian market here in San Diego.
