I was in the belief that South Korea (goverment) doesn't like gambling but it seems playing poker is passable there. Also this guy might be an award winning rapper but his stage name is far the most stupid one I've ever saw. At least he could try to be 'dawg' or something like that.

I thought the same as bowie on this one,I am pretty sure I read somewhere that most gambling in South Korea was illegal but it looks like things have changed now.The internet does make gambling more mainstream now and it now seems most countries have realised this and now are more concerned with raising taxes from gambling.

Yeah, well after a little research I found out it's different if you a foreigner there plus they still have some establishment in remote areas to do these kinda things.
