Samsung Pay is based off of the phone's original country... As far I know there is not a way to flash and change it. If it's supported in Korea then it should work with certain debit or credit cards of yours.

I was doing some research on it and saw that some people has success with sam mobile and flashing the firmware. Not sure if it might work. Warranty isn't an issue for me.

I was about to say that might void your warranty. Yes I saw some had a success with it but it comes with problems of your warranty being void that's why I did not want to suggest it as an option.
But if you have knowledge of flashing software then do that, please just don't brick your phone.
I hope you get it right though (:
