Alibaba is safe but takes a long time and if tv breaks, it's gonna be another problems.. and 36% duty fee. It will cost probably 1.1L

Risky IMHO . Are you expecting international warranty ? If TV gets damaged during shipping, then any warranty may be void. Also a possible issue of getting a duplicate item. These duplicates can be very convincing, have the LG logo and similar menus

It is probably fake. LG charges around 4000$ for the panel to manufacturers and they are the only source of OLED panels for TVs.

No warranty + import tax (36% last I checked) + risk of getting fake tv + bonus chance of getting corona

why even bother
