Yeah, I guess honestly Matt is right...and I AM a gear freak. If you are starting out, you won't notice or be able to get much benefit from a lot of the more expensive models and brands. Gear is expensive and brand names just make it ridiculous (at times).
I also got a Tendon 60m x 9.8mm Dry rope, it's made in Czech and fully certified by UIAA and CE (the only two safety standards for climbing equipment). Anything that has these approvals is more than good enough for the abuse you'll give it....and I think all gear sold in Korea (bar clothes etc) must meet these standards for it to be sold.
In Seoul the area around the Cheonggyecheon stream at subway stop "Jong-ro 5 ga" (Dark blue line 1) is often a good place to hunt for bargains. Be prepared to shop around and bargain! You can get great discounts if you ask.
As for quickdraws....eventually you'll want about a dozen or so, and you may as well just get as many of the cheapest you can find for now and add to your collection gradually. Kong are often cheap here as are Trango and Mad Rock, and all are good solid manufacturers.
Belay devices are either mechanical (expensive) or manual (cheaper but need more attention when using). As a beginner or as a person wanting maximum flexibility out of your gear...go with the manual belay device. Cheaper, lighter, handles any kind of rope and teaches you good habits. Personally I love the Petzl Reverso 3, but the Black Diamond ATC, ATC Guide, Trango Pyramid, Kong Ghost etc are all fine. Figure 8 type units are OK but not as good as the above tube (or pig-nose) style devices.
