About The Korean Market
Korea is currently in a Smartphone revolution. According to a Korean Communications Commission report, there were only 800,000 Smartphone users in 2009 but that number has skyrocketed to 10 million users within 15 months! It is estimated that this number will double by the end of 2011 and grow to over 30 million by the year 2012.
Gaming is a Part of Korean Culture
More than 17 million people, or 35% of the Korean population are active gamers with yearly revenue of approximately $6 billion dollars.
About the Android Market in Korea
The games category was removed entirely in Korea and the Android Market only accounts for 10% of Android App Sales in Korea! All Android Game Developers must first register and pay submission fees to receive an age rating for the Korean Game Board. Then Developers need to register at the major app stores run by the Korean telecommunication companies such as the SK, KT, and LG Appstore. What makes this the most difficult is that this process is entirely in Korean.
