available in Korea are bootlegs. Second most common are legitimate
Japanese Famicom releases. However, Korea also tried their hand at
programming Famicom games. A company called Fun Fun Club seems to have
had the most success. Another company by the name of Golden Bell also
had a successful game.
Fun Club (잼잼크럽)
Fun Club developed
and released several Famicom games, probably more than any other Korean
company. They also released at least one Sega Master
System game, Dooly
(아기공룡 둘리), featuring the beloved baby dinosaur in a
gun-toting side-scrolling action adventure.
Fun Fun Club was part of Daou Infosys Corporation
is now known as Daou Data Corporation.
Interesting thing is, it seems that some Fun Fun Club games were developed by another company, Open Productions.
