    Looks kinda generic but will give it a try, I'm sure I've seen it before but that might have been that shitty Spy Kids game I'm thinking of.

    A few GBA games certainly were released in Korea. From what I can tell, the handheld itself wasn't. Could be wrong though...

    No. This appears to be based on an anime or manga. Other than that, don't have the slightest idea. But I'll provide screenshots. Doesn't look too difficult to translate given its large text boxes, plus the menus and title screen are English as it is.

    This is basically a simple action platformer. Decent graphics, however its play mechanics are kind of weird. It seems as if you jump the same height every time and jump again if the button is held down on landing. Unless I'm mistaken...

    No. Nintendo-approved GBA game development has ended worldwide.

    Iron Kid is what we know in the rest of the world as Eon Kid. This is a mediocre platformer made to cash in on that license.

    The thing is that while it is a pretty standard kid's show (and thus it doesn't have much appeal to adults), the Korean animators really do put a lot of effort into the animation, some of it is exceptionally well done. Just for that alone it deserves a better game than this. Maybe on the DS eventually.

    Yeah. I think Nintendo had some kind of deal or partnership to get started over there, before opening their own Korean division later.
