article [joongangdaily.joins.com] At Korea University yesterday, Google began a bus tour in which students can climb into the two-story vehicle and try out Google's desktop search engine and receive Gmail accounts, which have 2 gigabytes of storage. The bus will visit major university campuses in Seoul and the COEX Mall over the next three weeks. Google has a search engine in Korean (www.google.co.kr) but doesn't have offices here. Recently, however, it has been showing more interest in the Korean market.
As we know Google has to take a very different tack in the Korean market. Do these sort of promotional stunts promote usage in Korea?
