Korean perception of chinese phone is that its very low quality. They rather spend on Apple devices.
And historically South Korea has been a graveyard for foreign technological brands. Google doesn't dominate web searches there, it's naver.
HTC came and went briefly for 2 years, 2010-2012. Nokia entered and reentered at least 3 times, despite having manufacturing bases there (until Microsoft Mobile shut it down).
