Reports are starting to surface from South Korean government officials that the Android Market may be banned. The games in the Android Market have not yet received approval from the nation's regulating body, the Games Ratings Board. This may cause the entire Market to be excluded from South Korean Android devices.

Google's Korea branch has received a letter from the Ratings Board outlining what changes need to be made before the Market can be approved. If Google does not make the required changes it would get banned until they are made. 4000 games has yet to be rated by this board. There are two Android phones in South Korea and up to five more are rumored to be released this year, it would be awful for these phones to be rendered marketless.
