The sample gallery is HUGE and all pics are clickable to full-size (yes!)

I have to agree with you but I'm more disappointed with the IQ than with the photographer. With nearly 200 pics, even a beginner should have come up with a couple of technically satisfying photos. The impression I get so far is that this 'wonderful' new camera is only good for web-page pics and postcards size prints. And I REALLY hope that I'm totally wrong about this

I agree. Usually when I see sample pics I feel bad about the quality of my own photos. But not with those. My worst pics are better than any of those samples.

Like others, I hope the terrible picture quality is the result of a very poor photographer, not a bad camera.

There are hundreds photos on flickr already, posted by different (Korean) photographers. None of them are full size, but if they were technically good on full size they should look even better on small size, right? See for yourself:
