Are Blogspot blogs being blocked in South Korea?

A number of folks living in South Korea are complaining their *.blogspot blogs are inaccessible. I'm one of them.

I can access the blogger.com homepage and obviously my control panel, but I can't view the blog unless I go proxy.

I did a trace route a few times and it does appear to be stopping in Asia.

C:\Documents and Settings\esoft>tracert esofthub.blogspot.com

Tracing route to blogspot.l.google.com
over a maximum of 30 hops:
It was dying after 7 hops...

TraceRoute to 59.18.xx.xx

Blogger Help Group

Update @1903 KST Nov 2: After several hours of dialog with Korean Telecoms customer service and their technicians, I'm finally able to access *.blogspot URLs.
I spoked to one of their English speaking representatives and he said the issue was being worked.
