Confused in Korea

An online magazine, OhMyNews International Entertainment in Korea, got their Pirates of the Caribbean screenwriters backwards and apparently Ted and Terry got lost in translation.

"With almost all the main lead actors from the first Pirates movie, along with two writers (Stuart Beattie and Jay Wolpert) who worked alongside the screenwriters of the first movie (Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio), it seems as though this will bring a brand new action-packed adventure, much to the delight of audiences across the globe."
Beattie and Wolpert, who shared writing credit with T&T on the first film, are named as co-creaters of characters in POTC2. But, I'm wondering how anyone connected to the entertainment industry, even in Korea, could not know which pens are behind Dead Man's Chest.

Oh wait -- there's the answer on the sidebar --

Well, most of the writers are not Korean. They have Asian and Hispanic and American sounding names.
