OK, I don't know for sure whether the following games were on MSX. They've been advertised for the Goldstar Famicom-150, which mostly used software from the Sord M5. However, I wasn't able to find info on the following games for the system, so maybe they could be conversions from MSX (or ported to MSX and Sord, as the latter didn't have many exclusive titles, anyway). They've been advertised in 1983, so they're either from that year or older. I'm writing a translation of the Korean title for each game, but the original title might be way different. It is possible that there are Korean developed games among them (which is basically what I want to find out, ultimately).

"Kudang Kodang" (untranslatable, ROM)

Space War II (Tape)

Pirate Expedition II (Tape)

Hurdle Race (Tape)

And there's also this, which is a confirmed MSX game, advertised in 1986. Manuel posted it in the Zemina thread, but I include it here in case someone might be skipping that one.

That Kudang Kodang reminds me Konami's "Crazy Train" Wink For the others, no idea.

I'd say that "HAWK WARRIOR" is Toshiba-Emi's "MOONSWEEPER" - check here the screenshots

Hurdle race reminds me a bit of Wonderboy. The picture is quite blurry but I think I see the protagonist of Wonderboy being harrased by some snake like type.

Hurdle Race also says "Replay (Y/N)" if I see it correctly...

Got one more. Advertised in early 1989 by Zemina, this was just labeled "shooting game".

Could be a licensed Japanese title or an unlicensed port of a non-MSX game.
