'...online security systems most commonly adopted for the commercial transactions over the Internet in Korea may require some ActiveX plug-ins to be downloaded and installed on your browser. Since ActiveX is only supported on Microsoft Winodws OS, we must advise you to logon to our website in Windows environment.'
