I would speculate that Honam would focus on South Korea as a starting point and really get a good foothold there before venturing out further into SE asia. South Korea is pretty technologically advanced and ready for that type of technology imo.
Also the lack of "real material" resources is a huge problem. They still use brickets in the rural areas for many of their heat for hooches. Electricty is rather rare & needs to be transported by cement poles from point of origin.
