Apparently, most folks don't own a PC over there but spend time in (obviously crowded) cybercafes [read: "PC baangs"]...I wonder why this is so prominent in Korea? what about Japan or elsewhere?

After the ugliness of World War II, Korea banned many Japanese imports. The result? No Nintendos. No Segas. No PlayStation or PlayStation 2. In this unique space, the PC was it.
