computer experts: If I buy motherboard here, will BIOS be in Korean?

I'm looking to build a gaming PC for the first time.  I'd obviously like to buy all parts locally to avoid shipping costs and import duties.  However, since this is my first attempt, I'm reluctant to complicate the process by having to work with a BIOS in Korean, or have to worry about flashing the BIOS to change it.

Does anyone know

1) if the BIOS from a motherboard made for Korean market will be in Korean

2) If it will be easily changed to English through an options menu, without having ot flash the BIOS

Thanks guys.

I have 8 motherboards supporting various chip sets and they all have English BIOS. I think if you want to be doubly sure pay a visit to one of the computer towns in either Gaya or Dongnae the guys there can help you.

Alternatively if you have basic Korean you might consider buying online. I just bought a new PC online last month. You can mix and match parts and it usually works out cheaper than buying locally.

The custom-built computers I've bought in Korea had English language BIOS.
