Yepp. that is done by several chinese "free" email providers...

Those chinese chars were placed by the providers in the last some 
lines like a signature/footer.


There is an inforamtion from "KISA" how to tag "legal" korean spam:

    2.  For the reference, you could filter Korean Spam mails by
    using the strings introduced below.

    People who would like to advertise adult stuff should put the
    sign of '("ù"¬àî¡/¢'¡Æí)' at the head of subject.  In case of
    general advertisement, they have to attach '(¡/¢'¡Æí)' at the
    head of subject.  In both cases, you need round brackets ( )
    around the string.

    ("ù"¬àî¡/¢'¡Æí) means (advertisement for adult or 'ADLT') in
    (¡/¢'¡Æí) means (advertisementor 'ADV') in English.

    Since you don't understand and write Korean, I introduce the
    two text strings for you to use in your filters.
