Hey Mike, yeah the Seoul crew have developed (almost single handedly - major cudos and wraps to you guys!!) one of the best bouldering scenes in Korea, right there in Seoul. The infamous RB's (River Bed Boulders) being I believe the primo playground. I'm not sure how expensive pads are here, but I imagine they are not cheap...and 90% of the pads here are the Madrock Pad...which some people don't seem to like much (I dunno anything about pads though...)Could you maybe snail mail a pad cheaply?
