The declaration is on goods that you would plan to bring and leave in the country you are arriving into. So if you have over $400 USD of goods in NZ for friends in S. Korea you would have to declare them. The same when you return to NZ, if you have over $400 USD of goods from Korea you are bringing into NZ you would have declare them. Note it does not matter who pays for the good (or if they are a gift) it is the value. Also just because you have over $400 of goods no does not mean you will have to pay duty on then - it depends on the customs schedule. But the first $400 would not be assed duty the remainder would be. Liquor is a good example. The first two liters could be duty free but the others are not.
