University reputation: does it matter in Korea for getting a job?

I will soon be finishing my MSc at Imperial College, which in the West is generally considered a world renowned university with an exceedingly high reputation (note I don't think much of it but that is another story) in the West. Do Koreans know of it? or better put would people hiring at universities know of it?

Any info is appreciated and cheers...

I think you'll be lucky to get a Uni job off the bat mate.Most people have to work their way up, can take a while, luck of the draw.Hope you get one, but it's a little late to apply.There might be a few stragglers left, but they might not be good jobs.
