The reason for this is that the Android Market contains about 4,400 games that have not been rated by South Korea’s Game Rating Board (which decides if games are suitable for all ages or not).
The Game Rating Board has sent a letter to Google requesting the company’s collaboration. Reportedly, Google Korea is in the process of reviewing the letter.

Interestingly, Apple’s Korean version of the App Store doesn’t have a games category, although it contains games in the entertainment category (these games, however, are already monitored by the Game Rating Board).
