    Question for Korean KMS veterans about usual Korean players

    I'm just curious... I know websites like itemmania have mighty fierce dominance on meso/item trades, but I'm also curious if there are popular Korean game forum websites that have bustling market section. Also, I know a lot of players in GMS and EMS relies on bitcoins/paypal,etc (name me other popular ones when available) for transaction. I'm not sure if Koreans know much about bitcoins, nevermind use them frequently. If there are private markets (black market, or just non-centralized market) available in other Korean game forums similar to this albeit much greater traffic, what kind of payment would they use? Paypal? Maybe Korean version of paypal? In websites like GMarket that my parents and my brother sometimes use (GMarket is sorta like Korean Ebay sorta), they pay using registered credit card only (which may not be much since my parents are very conservative and don't know much about stuff like paypal). Is there any Koreans (or foreigners who have successfully adapted Korean society) who has a broad understanding about these topic of interest? It'd be nice to get a second opinion from my Korean contacts and see if the views are consistent.

    Itemmania seems to be the predominant website for KMSers. I havent heard of another method that people use in my time.
    Insoya might be a secondary, but that's essentially the KMS version of Basilmarket.

    Are you a Korean yourself? Perhaps you have contacts who could look into it and see because Koreans should have their version of gamesoul counterparts, especially considering how many players are.
    Oh and another thing, how do Koreans pay for these things? Do they use international shit like paypal (would make my life easier) or is it pegged to Korean banks and hence complicates Koreans paying to foreigners and vice versa?

    Hmmm...that sucks. Cause even if they were using paypal, itemmania will only allow Korean bank to be registered for receive payment methink which means they won't be able to pay me directly. Booo Wendy.

    And hierarchical Koreans will never tolerate direct paypal arrangement in itemmania (probably set up so that P2P communication is limited, if not available. Maybe I should just open up a tent and sell in the game... ahh, but been there and done that in GMS. Sigh
