Re: Korean Case for IDNs and Generics

Weak, at best.

(Companies that use co.kr) either are truly trying to cater to domestics or simply prefer the availability under that TLD as opposed to .com. I am guessing the latter, but I do not have enough feedback to know for sure.
I'm guessing the former. In my limited experience with Asian overseas sales, there is a decided preference for the local.

The point, however, is that English generic variations continue to dominate the foreign domain space. Of course, IDN’s are the ultimate solution, but I am sure that none of these companies know of such a thing. Koreans are an extremely high-tech people and I am sure they would pick up the concept of IDN’s quite quickly if it were pushed on them. They really just need a large company to make a run with it and the growth will come from there. Unfortunately, with the large companies already having gone for a .com, it may not be that easy. So, in reality, we need a medium sized company that has not entrenched itself in a .com, but may be at the peak of the .co.kr market to undertake such an endeavor.
This dude is nuts.

It's absurd to think that Korean companies don't know "of such a thing."

They know damn well.

"Koreans are an extremely high-tech people and I am sure they would pick up the concept of IDN’s quite quickly if it were pushed on them..."

Ugh... Is this the voice of an ambassador?

"So, in reality, we need a medium sized company that has not entrenched itself in a .com, but may be at the peak of the .co.kr market to undertake such an endeavor."

Insane.

What we need is small – no, tiny – Korean companies to start profiting from these things...

No, we need tiny Japanese companies to start profiting from these things. Screw Korea, I have very few Korean names.

We need tiny (I mean tiny) Japanese and Arabic-speaking companies to start making sales, or we need to do it for them.
