It is a Korean server run by, as far as I can tell, a for-profit Korean
company. There are players of all levels, with significantly more high-dans
than you can typically find on something like KGS or IGS (including, as you
mentioned, many pros. I think Tygem and Fox cover the vast, vast majority
of recreational online play by pros).

It's mostly Korean, but there are rooms for Chinese, Japanese, and "World"
players as well. Anybody can join and play, although some rooms and
features are restricted by rank and by whether you've bought premium access.

If you're a serious player, you definitely will want to familiarize
yourself with it.
