According to today's update to Nintendo of Korea's Web site, Pocket Monsters Diamond and Pearl are set for a South Korean release Feb. 14. As in other regions, the games will make use of the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. They will retail for 39,000 won, or approximately US$41.

As of right now, there is no information about how the Wi-Fi interaction with games from other regions will work, as all previously-released versions of Diamond and Pearl in different languages do not include the Korean characters that would be needed to display Korean Pokémon names.
