I am sure you will know this one immediately since I see you have several of them on your page as part of the art. I found this in my room earlier, it was very small around 1 inch.

Dear Mini Man,
This is an Earwig, and it has several very distinctive features that should make it relatively easy to identify to the species level, however it is not one of the five species pictured on the Earwigs of Korea webpage we located.  The unique features on your specimen include the very lengthy forceps and the narrow neck between the head and thorax.
