Trademark Help in S.Korea (Seoul)

I am a member of Internations and am in real need of some legal advise in Seoul regarding a trademark issue. My new distributor who is Korean, filed an application for my trademark without my permission. I have a small business, and sold some of my products to him in order for him to start to market them there exclusively.
I am now in this dilemma, and time is running out, as he filed in January. He is now trying to coerce/blackmail me to pay him high fees to change it to my name. I am told that I need only a representative with an address in Korea, in order to contest it via Kipo, the trademark office there. If anyone can help me or know of someone who is honest and can help, I greatly appreciate it!!! Thank you Rosana
