@Peter, I had forgotten about its debt situation, thanks for the reminder. If there are no takers, what will the South Korean govt do?

Well the banks that converted the debts Hynix owed them into equity nearly a decade ago are trying to get out, so I doubt it. You may remember that the debts, to a consortium of banks, built up when Hynix was bailed out to prevent it disappearing after a DRAM market collapse.

It's an odd bid. I guess it is trillion won. Maybe a bank or VC will step in?
