There are a few wannabe's on smaller airframes and Japan would be happy to sell their new flying boat as a ASW patrol aircraft as well.

Not sure how this would compare with the P-8, but SAAB has their Swordfish MPA:
SAAB provides the mission system . The two aircraft models available at the moment are the Bombardier Q400 and Global 6000. No customers yet AFAIK.

It seems exceedingly unlikely that the ROK would buy a Japanese product. That said, the P-8 seems like a lot of aircraft for their range needs.
The P-1 has a similar radius, so a bit much as well it seems. But there is not much else on the market at the moment and a modern MPA would cost too much for south korea to develop themselves.
