Keyword metrics for Korean Domains

I have been doing some research into Korean domains and after reading up a little I noticed (if I'm correct) that the search engine market is very fragmented and search engines have a very different way of displaying results on the first page than the American version. For example, see Yahoo Korea vs

For Keyword research the Korean OVT tool is available but after checking several pretty ok keywords the returned OVT scores are fairly low.

My questions:

1. Are the Korean OVT scores in general lower (without taking into account the different size of the markets OVT scores are available) as a result of the smaller market share Yahoo has in Korea?

2. If the answer to 1 is Yes, has anyone got a multiplier to get a closer estimate for the keyword data

3. Are there local Korean tools that give a better indication?

Thanks, any hint is appreciated.

Re: Keyword metrics for Korean Domains

I've always thought that Korean and Japanese OVT are about the same most of the time, but for top keywords i registered, Korean tend to have bigger OVT than Japanese eqvuivalents, maybe because Korean doesn't have dual versions like kanji and kana?

Some comparison:
