Referring to above item: can it be used on Honda Airwave car or Korean cars?

It's much cheaper than "Iridium" spark plugs our local mechanics here offer (tho I don't know exactly if the
local Iridiums here are the same as what's given in Amzon link above

Short answer:  Yes.

Long answer:

You need to get one that has specifications close to the ones you are presently using.  For example, no use in getting ones that don't have the same heat range of your present plugs.

NGK should have a plug comparison chart so you can find what they recommend suitable for your vehicles.

The Amazon site has a selector that lets you enter the year, make, and model of your vehicle -- and it will tell you if the product works with that vehicle.    I selected a 2007 Honda Fit (I believe an Airwave was a version of the Fit) ... and it shows that this plug does NOT work with that vehicle.    If you want to check another vehicle (e.g. a Korean car as you mentioned), just enter the details on Amazon's selector to see if that will work with it.

May I ask for 2 favours:
> The Amazon site has a selector
Can provide me the exact url to enter the make/year of my car (Honda Airwave 2009)?

Can provide me an Iridium spark plug that works with Honda Airwave (1.5 litres engine)

The Airwave is a version of the Fit => the site shows that a 2009 Fit does NOT work with those plugs.

This works with your car:  http://www.amazon.com/Honda-Spark-NGK-Iridium-IZFR6K13/dp/B00IXBM1NC

The Honda Airwave was renamed to Honda Fit.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_Airwave

The correct spark plugs are:
Manufacturer Part Number:12290-RB1-003
Interchange Part Number: IZFR6K13

A set of 4 plugs is cheaper than one plug times 4:
Since posting links to non lasting sources are banned by EE and will be deleted by EE you should google the spark plug part details that I gave you in my previous post.
The links are given in my next post so copy then before EE staff delete them as so called "blind links" = links that do not last.

Thanks v much Michael, got the links.

Anyone knows the Amazon link(s) that Gary referred to where we can key in
the "selector that lets you enter the year, make, and model of your vehicle --
and it will tell you if the product works with that vehicle" ?

"... Anyone knows the Amazon link(s) that Gary referred to where we can key in  the "selector that lets you enter the year, make, and model of your vehicle -- and it will tell you if the product works with that vehicle" ? "   ==>  The link YOU posted in your question does that.    If you already have a vehicle selected, you have to choose the drop-down by that vehicle and select "Enter a New Vehicle".

... Or simply Google "spark plugs for xxx" -- where "xxx" is the exact make/model of your vehicle.

Note, by the way, that the Airwave wasn't "renamed to Fit" -- it was built on the same chassis as the Fit, but was a station wagon version.    It was, however, only sold in the Japanese market.
