Supercom (Hangul: 슈퍼콤, Syupeokom), also known as Haitai Supercom (해태 슈퍼콤, Haetae Syupeokom) was a video game publisher and distributor active in South Korea around 1989 to 1993. It was set up by Haitai, a big South Korean conglomerate at the time. In 1993 they got the rights to distribute the PC-Engine in South Korea but the console failed to sell there. Haitai closed Supercom at that time.
Supercom was apparently the official distributor of Whirlwind Manu catalog in Korea. They made their own cover for each releases often featuring Hangul and their logo. the games were sometime retailed with a plastic tape box with a generic cover. They also manufactured their own cartridges cases at a point.
Probably after the lawsuit with japanese publishers, Supercom went on to distribute titles licensed in South Korea by Daou Infosys from Tengen and Color Dreams. They seem to have ended their Famicom activities in 1992 with the release of Magic Kid Googoo and the production of their last clone, the Supercom X-1600.
