Every once in a while, we publish the top 5 iOS (free & paid), Android (free & paid) and Cyworld apps in Korea.

Since the beginning of November, there has been a large shake up in the rankings. Previously, the Korean government required all games to submit their games for ratings board approvals. While local game publishers went through the process of getting their games approved and published in the Entertainment categories, large foreign publishers such as EA or Rovio did not bother do go through this approval process. The Korean government changed their stance in the beginning of November and games were opened up to the Korean market. Games, many of which are created by foreign publishers, now dominate the rankings in Korea.
