Because the official airliner for this worldcup is not determined, they cannot use worldcup images for their schemes. You know why Ansett painted its planes with 'Sydney 2000'.

Now, Asiana is the official sponsor of Korea Football Association, although it's nothing to do with worldcup.

Korean Air just painted an A300 with a special scheme, promoting Jeju Island. A Holiday Island south of the coast of Pusan, popular amongst Koreans, Japanese and Chinese. It is about 1.5 hours flying time away from Seoul.
