I'm not an advocate of fighting abuse with abuse. However, I was getting
scanned by a Chinese site many times every day. I set up a chron job to
grep the log (messages through messages.6) every hour with the offending
IP, combine it with a base message and send it to the ISP hourly with
the advisory that I would do so until it stopped. It stopped.

I lived in Asia for several years (in the employ of a US company). It's
a reasonable certainty that your friend at the abuse desk in Korea
speaks English.
