I'm using HTC One X so I'm not sure whether it's my device or what.
I followed your steps and it didn't work. I even used VPN (Japan), market helper (Samsung Galaxy S3) and market enabler (NTT Docomo) at the same time.
My IP was a Japanese IP and Google Dashboard showed my International HTC One X as "samsung GT-I9300 NTT docomo", but still no luck.
I also cleared cache, forced stop Google Play and reboot.

edit:
It didn't work when I used my primary Google account. But when I added my other Google account that was never used for Google Play before, it worked!

Don't use market enabler or any other app. It will not work for the moment.

Start a us vpn and go with your browser on a website like whatismyip.com and verify if your vpn is working. You should be located in us.
But if it's working with one account, it should work with the other one

Keep the vpn open, wipe google play cache and data, then open it. Try also to reboot your router.
If it's still not working, remove your google account and put it back. Then start the vpn, and then the play store.

Does this only work with play store or will any of those work with the Netflix app?

I don't know what is exactly the problem with Netflix, I don't use it.

A vpn will fake your connection, and can, for example, put it in the us.
If it's what the app needs, it should work with netflix.

Just try

Pretty sure mine doesn't work too well unless I change the actual sim card to a foreign one.

I was able to get the VPN (US selected) to open up and get access into the Oscar awards app. But it doesnt let me download the Free Song of the Day in the US PlayStore even with VPN enabled.

And netflix works ?

Yep, you need at least a card on Google Wallet (or a gift card or somethine like that) to download, free or paid, film or music.

We don't need it for free books (and apps :P )

Hmm I did not see a VPN app for South Korea :/

What you can do, but it's risky, it's to create your vpn in Android settings - more (under data consommation) - VPN, and to use a adress here http://www.xroxy.com/proxy-country-KR.htm
But I' m afraid of the security of this distant server.
