It appears to be an Korean edition of the PC version of THPS2 that adds new skaters in a very similar vein to the Japanese edition of THPS2 for the GBA.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 (PC)

Release Region: Japan
Release Date: Unreleased
Publisher: Activision

other regions only uk, us and au. was it kind of pirated release? :P

though a bit from tony's interview:

- THPS 2 in Japan was released with three professional Japanese skaters in addition to the original lineup. Did you know these skaters or were they added without your knowledge?

- That was for Korea - it was a Korean girl band. They thought it was the only way to draw attention to an American game (which don't do well in Asia). Yes, I knew about it.

YO THIS IS REAL! Some Korean gamer (I think), who always uploads gameplay videos uploaded videos of it this week!

Check it out:
Physical autographed box in great condition + Gameplay - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VazYQ9TCXoU

I found a couple of copies for sale on a Korean site and ordered them. I'll upload the .iso when the first one gets here!

I also learned that the THPS3 release in Japan had a few Japanese skaters that nobody else got:

I assume this is what the interviewer was trying to ask about, the three Japanese guys. It's not that special, just some localization I guess to help sell the title. I was going to try to pick up a copy of it as well to upload, but I haven't found it yet.

Please note the ISO can be considered a 'rip' and not 1:1. I only have a CD-R copy on hand... I'm currently looking for the original disc so I can make a 1:1. It is around here somewhere buried deep.
- from that linked post

Well at least it wasn't a waste to order it, plus I want the physical box anyways, so I'll upload an 1:1 .ISO when it gets here.

However I checked the cracked exe and it did it well, until level loading. Game just shuts down without any error.
I tried the eng nocd and it worked flawlessly, except the fact that it mostly turns it into regular thps2 without additional characters.
