Originates from Korea. Looks like spammers are in control of many (I'd say
all...) of the machines in the Korean educational system, and an increasing
number of them likes to hit the victims in a direct-to-MX fashion.

Curiously, the messages' charsets are almost always iso-8859-1 or plain ASCII.
I very rarely receive spam in non-Western languages.
