Create a new Column to change Value in Column B given a conditional value of Column A

Hello! 

 

Here is a mock-up dataset:

 

Column A Column B 
Japan2
Korea4
Japan6
Korea1
Korea9

 

What I need to do is to create a new column that will multiply the values of Column B by 2 if the country in Column A is Korea, while retaining the original value of Column B for Japan.

 

I really appreciate any help! Thank you so much 🙂
