I heard that the strong censorship laws placed in South Korea are beginning to weaken. I think this is good for us for certain reasons. K-porn may become as popular as its Japanese varient soon enough!

It might not be a good thing. Koreans looking for uncensored porn might be coming to American sites for their fix and if the laws become less strict they might open better Korean pay sites and we'll loose that business :cry: . Is the Korean scene as strong as the Japanese? Do they have a version of JP-Sex.com?

Im not sure how many webmasters out there use processors such as MS Bill which accepts korean credit cards but I spoke with the VP of a competing company why majority processors dont accept Korean credit cards is because the traffic coming in from Korea is pretty high in the chargeback arena because in Korea, if you pay for anything like gas, gifts, clothes, etc using a Korean c.c., your personal info comes out on the receipt. Many consumers just throw away there receipts and many of those are picked up and use frauduently.

I personally dont accept Korean c.c.'s because of the higher than normal services and reserve fees for this reason.

I havent heard anything about the lowering of the restrictions in Korea but I've seen plenty of Korean language based sites for koreans only and some are doing fairly well (supposedly).

Mostly all these sites are hosted out of Korea so they will not get busted.

There are so many untapped markets in Asia to accept 'there countries' c.c.'s. Korea is very untapped and so are places like China, Thailand, and Singapore, and India.

I typed this site in by accident a few weeks ago:

www.1000.com
It's a Korean porno site -- nice design :)
