The South Korean crypto market has unique factors that contribute to the price difference. For example, foreign investors cannot trade on South Korean exchanges, which limits the supply of cryptocurrencies in the country.

This, combined with strong demand from local investors, may result in a higher premium for cryptos in the South Korean market.

The recent rise in the kimchi premium suggests a significant increase in buying pressure from retail investors in South Korea.
