If it came from Wendy C, its true. I had the same issue in August 2007.
You get the money back when you leave Korea...you can post the deposit with the shipper and they will put it down for you for customs.
Phil Flanagan on the HUBB wrote about his experience with handling Korean customs on a HUBB post, if you to look that up:type "Phil Flanagan" and HUBB into google or some combination of that.
Another option to get around the deposit issue, is to have the vehicle shipped from Busan to Zurubina, bonded. You take a train/bus from Incheon Airport to Sochko, and take the ferry from there...the car will be put on the ferry by Wendy C, and arranged with the Dong Chung Ferry people. This doesn't prevent you rom seeing korea, only by car...their mass transit is exceptional.
have to pull it out of customs in Zurubina(south of Vladivostok). Ask Hook about that
