    Yue DAI (戴跃) just tweeted on Wechat that he spent several million US dollars to acquire the domain KR.com. This followed his acquisition of JP.com in January this year. JP is the abbreviation for Japan and KR for Korea. Dai also runs his domain shopping mall from Yuming.com. BTW, YuMing.com (域名) is a 2-pin domain meaning "domain".

    This is not so stupid.at all. : Centralnic has "sunsetted" (read : finished new registrations and renewals) a year ago (announced in 2016 already) some (8 in total) 2nd level domain extentions, and wanted to get some cash for other extentions they want to buy instead of these. The consequence of course is that they sell these for as high as possible.

    https://www.internetnews.me/2016/04/29/centralnic-sunsetting-several-sld-extensions/

    .KR.COM is ONE OF THE SUNSETTED EXTENTIONS BY CENTRALNIC A YEAR AGO. (search here on the forum or in google, and you'll find this back) (Centralnic promised not to sunset others, but these 8 (see article in above link mentioned) were the least profitable 2nd level extentions and they wanted get rid of them to sell for big money). .
    Probably the current buyer wants to begin 2nd level-domainextentions for .KR.COM and .JP.COM Of course he can have other intentions with these 2 domainnames JP.COM and KR.COM (JP.COM does not come from Centralnic I presume, but KR.COM certainly is, as you can see)
    (although .JPN.COM is still a 2nd level domainextention of Centralnic).
