Original Kobo Arc Suspicious App?

I just received a replacement Kobo Arc from Kobo (very impressed with the service) I;ve only had it for a couple days but I've noticed a built-in app at the bottom of the All Apps page in settings that has a title all in some kind of Asian characters that is 144KB. Does everyone else have this app, or is it something malicious I've picked up?

I installed Malwarebytes and the scan didn't find anything. I've turn on live protection to see if it will catch anything connecting with a suspicous server.

No big deal, I have it on my year old Arc.
Just disable the app.
From memory it's a Korean/Japanese language doodad!!!!
