    korean wii is neither pal nor ntsc.
    it has its own region (korean).
    so if you try to run pal or ntsc or ntsc-j on unmodded korean wii, they won't run.
    korean wii is designed to run korean-region specific titles only.

    Yeah maybe korean Wii use NTSC format as standar (i don't know the korean's format). But the firmware maybe let's say 3.2K or 4.0K (not E or U or J) this means korean specific firmware and also korean specific channels i think.

    I have a korean wii, but the shop owner flashed english firmware on it before selling.

    Generally u can always use anyregion changer to check (make sure u get one that supports korean firmware). If you don't know what i'm talking about, it's best not to do anything.

    neither.

    it has its own firmware K, it even had a korean specific firmware release or 3.5 or something
    Korean = K, whereas:

    PAL = E
    US = U
    JPN = J

    so none of them will work probably XD

    any title delete duplicate channels?

    Are you seriously that dense ? I almost never attack people in a post, but honestly... The stupidity in this post frightens me.

    The OP is asking what TV standard his Wii outputs. Not what region it is. Spend 10 seconds in Google and you'd know that PAL and NTSC are two different TV standards, and have little to do with region, other than groups of people / countries (or regions!) often adopt one standard over another (and lets not go into the myriad of sub-standards nor will I delve into SECAM).

    So here is a page that tells provides you with the information you need.

    ps. if you're too lazy to go read it: South Korea is NTSC-M

    from these three things you can clearly see he is NOT talking about TV output.

    he needs to know what region his wii is so he can use a program designed for that specific wii region.


    and if you have converted to 3.2U then what do you think it is??

    like i said, anyregion changer will be able to tell you which video standard you are on...

    or atleast it has the ability to change it.

    South Korea is NTSC, as said many times in this thread.

    Just run the anyregion changer and see for yourself which video mode it's using... you can change it too...
    If it's converted to 3.2U then software wise it's NTSC-U (region of the wii)
