Found these at a thrift shop... Have no idea what years they were used though.I also have a badged one that looks very similar to the US Woodland pattern but I can't find the pic.

The one at the top is ROK Marines, definitely. The others appear to be variations on "noodle" camo, more or less.
The thing about the ROK is that they're highly militarized. Each school in Korea pretty-much has its own camo, and the Army & Marines change their stuff with such frequency that it is difficult to pin down a lot of things. I too have some of the woodland-looking stuff. Has a tag on the inside, lower-left in Hangul, with a star motif, and metric measurements?
Couldn't care less what it is worth. All I know is that I really like it.
Then again, my wife is 1/2 Korean, and so I am biased.
The camo you got there is neat. I wish some would come my way. All in all, I'd say you scored.
Gilles & Steve could give you more hard data. They seem to know this stuff, really well.
Best to you,
