Carefull: you are on a German reg'd bike, aren't you? Apparently, Lars (lars at ontheroad.de) was the last one to be able to drive in S. Korea, because the German govt. hasn't signed a certain intl' road convention and so they won't let any more German reg'd vehicles be driven in their country.

You will need to verify this situation elsewhere...

Good luck,
