Yeah that's pretty much the norm r.e the finish. Either it's the same WW or there's one for US/CA and another for the ROW. I can rarely recall anywhere in Asia receiving a different finish to the UK for a WWA steel.
I was hoping it would be glossy. I know Paramount releases in South Korea usually have full gloss finish like the US steels, but this is obviously not a Paramount release. Seems lame that this steel can't be full gloss worldwide.
