A New Kid on the Block: Korean Competition Law, Policy, and Economics


  • Sang-Seung Yi
  • Youngjin Jung

However, its track record in enforcing merger control leaves much to be desired and its recent ambitious foray into regulating unilateral conduct by global firms such as Microsoft has received a mixed review.
