Any one know why there are two Korean characters in the title of the game?  Does the game take anything from Korean lore?  Also anyone know what those characters actually say?

Yeah, it says "dust". I take it because either the creator is part Korean, or it just makes for a good-looking title.

Also, in case you guys haven't realized, a lot of the items in the game are Korean. (e.g. Kim Bap - 김밥, Halmeoni Pendant - 할머니 Pendant, etc.)

I was wondering this myself.

After playing the demo of this game, I promptly bought it for 50% off. I would really like to see the world of Korean video games more often. I really was excited about Nate Simpson's Nonplayer #1, which was set in the middle of a Korean MMO and also looked like the "face world" of that book was set in Korea, or at least a world where Korea had become a world power.
