It looks like the iPad 2 is selling well in South Korea, too. According to a Reuters article from today, the device is actually flying off the shelves in the country (where it went on sale on April 29). Major Korean telcos SK Telecom and Korea Telecom at least had to suspend sales today even though they started offering the iPad 2 online less than a week ago.

As usual with Apple products, country-specific sales numbers are impossible to get, but SK Telecom says they are completely sold out and blames the iPad 2′s “global supply shortages” for the situation.

Google Translate tells me Koreans can still order the iPad 2 (all models) in Apple Korea’s online store though (even though customers have to wait 1-2 weeks).
