Korean .info names - worth regging or not?

I found an ok Korean keyword when searching on Dynadot, only the .info is available to reg with all other extentions taken. This particular Korean word has about 10,000,000 Google results & also has Google Trends.

At this point of the game, are Korean worth regging or is it better to search for other names?

Re: Korean .info names - worth regging or not?

Think .info is only good for development, not much value for resale.

Someone holding all the main terms in korean .info dropped them all a month or so ago, picked up blogs and movies i think.

If someone is dropping all of them i would guess there is not much resale value.

Re: Korean .info names - worth regging or not?

I have a few and will be dropping them .. no traffic .. agree that they might be good for development but I personally can't be bothered / don't have the skills necessary .. Top teir terms might be worth holding but I myself have little or no faith in them (The few I have are nowhere near 'top teir' BTW)

Re: Korean .info names - worth regging or not?

One huge problem with developing Korean domains of any kind is the lack of any affiliate programs that allow people from outside Korea to join. You generally need a korean citizen registration # to join anything.

Certainly puts the [korean].info down a few notches on my droplist wish list.

Re: Korean .info names - worth regging or not?

Oh and the other thing I just thought about which is a downside for Korean in .info (and .biz?) is that they block 1 and 2 character registrations.

Am I right in thinking that average Joe Blow Korean guy who wants to see if IDN's work in .info is most likely to try a 2 character phrase and think that because it dowsn't work, .info doesn't do IDN?

I think korean is similar to chinese to some extent, in fact, much of it is chinese, but written in another form. So double characters are more common than single characters?
