You are partially correct. All of South Korea's networks are CDMA 1XEVDO except for one that is iDEN. However, two of the three major providers (SK Telecom and KT Freetel) have overlaid their EVDO networks with UMTS2100 in the major cities.
With that in mind, the 8707 will function there because it supports UMTS2100 in addition to GSM/GPRS 850/900/1800/1900, and both at&t and T-Mobile have roaming agreements with the providers.
