Can you buy small quantities of 11x17 paper in South Korea?

People in my (US-based) office are going nuts today trying to overnight a ream of blank 11x17 paper to Korea. Is this really necessary?

All this headless chickenery is because our Seoul office insists it's impossible to get just the handful of sheets they need for a special project we tasked them to finish and deliver to a client over there. Instead they swear they can only buy a whole case of it for about $200.
Surely this is some combination of language barrier, lack of local knowledge and willful obtuseness, right? I mean it's not the middle of the Sahara - they're in Seoul, land of Gangnam style, of massive Samsung flat screens, of the highest Internet penetration and the best Starcraft players in the world! Surely there's a quick print shop that will sell you paper in quantities less than a case?
So South Korean MeFites, could you find a dozen sheets of 11x17 paper if you really needed to? And how? (The stuff we have to deal with, I swear.)
