Korean AppStore

I just made an ask account today, and just from scoping out the place, it is amazing how different it is from the other stores.

There are games everywhere, and it's mostly dominated by Netmarble and Nexon. Even the way they purchase IAP is different, like the #1 purchases tend to be in the $10 entangle of the top 150 best grossing apps.

This is a major contrast compared to our market, and it makes me wonder why some developers have shown them no attention.

AFAIK, the Korean market is still very small vs. the US one? Perhaps those numbers are the reason?
