Japanese Mochi / Korean Mozzi - Same thing?

Well, the question is basically in the title... I've wanted to try mochi-sweets (daifuku?) ever since I know what they are, but all my asian market cares are korean rice-things with read bean filling called mozzi. Is it the same thing? They are a little wobbly on the outside and come in milky white or green-ish colors. Hard to explain... Here is a picture of one.

They come in different sizes and are generally very sweet, hard to compare to any western food in texture and, well, way too expensive for their size actually.

There are dozens of different kinds of mochi based sweets in Japan alone, with lots of regional variations, and there are many mochi-like snacks in China, Korea and so on. So for me, without tasting the ones you've had it's impossible to say how similar it is to Japanese daifuku and so on (daifuku is just one of the more commonly available mochi sweets)
