This post at Technokimchi — to be read with this quasi-rant — tells you everything you need to know about the Korean web environment.

I’ve read more than a few foreigners (such as Stafford and Brian) expressing anger at Korea’s ID-login system. Frankly, the sign-in system doesn’t bother me much anymore, since in my experience, Korean websites have gotten much better about accepting Foreigner ID numbers in the “Citizen ID” column.

Not being able to access Korean sites because I use Firefox on Linux (both at home and work), however, irks the living shit out of me. And it happens A LOT.
