I have a number of one-word English domain names registered in Korea and I'm wondering what they might be worth. These are serious, one-word domains for highly competitive terms. In order to register a Korean domain you have to have a Korean ID card, so it's much harder for non-Koreans to register keyword domain names and as such they've been bought up that bit slower.
Here in Korea they have what is often known as "Konglish", a mixture of English and Korean which has become an integral part of Korean daily life. There is a huge market for English language learning here and as the use of English rapidly increases, so does the brandability of domain names. I'm confident over the next 5-10 years these domains will be worth a great deal.
What do people here think?
Obtaining an accurate value for a domain is a tricky process, something of course not done here on WebmasterWorld. There are some appraisal services available, themselves of varied value depending on whose opinion you solicit. Perhaps a read through some of the Valuing threads in the Domain forum might be of assitance.
