Top 5 apps in Korea for the 1st week of February 2013 (iPhone App Store, Android Market, SKT app stores, KT Olleh,LG U+ and Samsung)

Hello everyone! This week, we bring you yet another look on the top 5 applications in Korea.

With the discounted sales of paid applications, the popularity of arcade and rpg games, it seems that game related applications have once again dominated Korean app stores, especially Google Play.

The game that we should all check out this week is WeMade’s newly launched ‘Wind Runner’. It immediately garnered enormous interest and took the top rank after its launch on January 28, 2013. Sadly, last week’s number one game ‘Bow’ has slid back to second place. But seeing that both games are launched through Kakao Talk, it’s hard to determine which game will rein king next week.

 

Elsewhere, users seem to be reminiscent of the past as Final Fantasy 2 is ranked just behind iTunes’ 1st place winner Final Fantasy1. Once a popular PC game, its fame has moved onto the mobile platform.

Shifting from games, we would also like to introduce a special app from Olleh market’s paid application section. The flashlight app is not only useful in the dark, but its clever functions allow users to display different lights and mood.

This week has once again been dominated by games and Kakao Talk. Eversince the launch of Kakao Talk, it has never once left the app stores’ top 5 list. How long do you think Kakao Talk will capture Korea’s app market?

Well thanks for being with us and be careful not to catch cold in this cold weather! Meanwhile, check out the rest of the list below :)
