Korean arcade parts basics Work in progress
With every particular style of arcade parts, there is certain design elements or conversions that follow each style.
As we already know the words of difference between American/European and Japanese style parts are.
Japanese parts are designed to be fitted into thin metal panels while American parts are intended for thicker wooded panels.
Korean parts tend to follow their own conventions which have similarities and differences from other styles.
With few exceptions, Korean joysticks can’t mount properly in the typical Japanese joystick mount.
As there usually a raised collar or neck that sticks above the top panel of a arcade controller.
There are three main manufacturers of Korean parts I will be dealing with
 Myoungshin Fanta
[*] Taeyung Fanta
There might be other manufacturers that could pop up but for joysticks at least we focus on those for now.
Korean sticks usually have no springs or restrictor gates.
Unlike more typical American or Japanese style joysticks, Korean joysticks use a rubber (or similar material) grommet to center the joystick shaft or lever.
For those who remembered the old American style part manufacturer Wico also used rubber grommets.
Even then there is different harnesses for the rubber grommets, labeled soft, medium and hard.
Korean sticks used individually tabbed microswitches or leaf switches, a .187 quick disconnect wiring or a .187 quick disconnect to a 5 pin JST E adapter is often used.
