Last time I checked google.co.kr the correct "korea" has about 21Mil count, but the typo actually has about 3Mil count.

About 15% of references to "korea" on the Internet are actually a typo!

This is a note to us all who had registered miss-spelled names to check them one more time before letting them to the drop; maybe they are not that bad after all!

Typo is now offered for sale at http://한극.com.
I have an even more silly story from Thailand. I had a handful down as typos of top domain names and would have let them drop, but later realised by chance that the corruption actually occur after registration during the compilation of my database, so they were actually all good!
