Why? You think Koreans are incompetent? 99% of the things you buy are made by uneducated Chinese, South Korea(there's an embargo on North Korea) is one of the more economically stable and well educated countries in the world.
If its not falling apart, I'll pay double the price you got it for and I'll part pay for shipping($10). So $22 shipped (That probably won't cover even shipping hahaha) In all seriousness, I find well worn looking briefcases lovely.
For something different once in awhile, I LIKE IT.
Korean standards are a lot higher than China. I have many clothing items made in Korea and all are of excellent quality workmanship and materials. Made in Korea = WELL MADE.
