Funny, since Apple bought something like 80% of Samsung's manufacturing capacity, wouldn't that be defining the market price (at that volume)?
If they were to sell anywhere close to the same number of chips to someone else for more, then you investigate.

I don't get it. I thought Capitalism was that you sold the best product to the highest bidder you can get. If Samsung wants to sell to Apple, why should S Korea care? Sounds like commie North Korean/Chinese/old Soviet Union cry-baby tactics to me. Apple should tell 'em to stuff it.

SEOUL, Oct. 7 (Yonhap) -- A probe may be conducted into allegations that Samsung Electronics Co. sold its NAND flash memory chips to Apple Computer Inc. at below-market prices, South Korea's top antitrust regulator said Friday.

Things similar to this is questionable in many western countries too.

There's nothing questionable about selling at below market prices. Dubious is selling at below cost. "Below-market prices" is what happens when prices fall, because the new, lower prices adjusts the market price downward. If no one ever sold at "below market" prices, no prices would ever go down, only up.
