The Fair Trade Commission will launch an inquiry into pricing at IKEA, the world's largest furniture chain, which will open its first store in Korea next month.
The move comes in response to allegations that prices here are in some cases nearly double those elsewhere.
The watchdog plans to publish its survey by February so that consumers can compare prices. It says the findings will pressure IKEA to voluntarily adjust its prices.
