Welcome oggle! Bugger aye. Where you from? what were you riding? .. ha ha ha!

I'm assuming you've lost both sets of keys?  I'm not too sure on prices, but I would say the safest option would be to replace the barrel and get two new keys.  Unfortunatly I can't see this being covered under warrenttee (sp) by Hyosung, ergo hitting your back pocket.

just go to your nearest dealer and pay for it to be replaced, barrel and all... easiest thing to do... also expensive, but it's going to expensive anyways...

the cheapest option is to remove the barrel from your bike itself, and take that to a locksmith to cut a new key for it.
so much cheaper. ~$35 compared to $150 for a new barrel.

If you are in the states I would suggest that if you don't have one already, you need to get a Triple A membership. The "Gold" level or above comes with what I like to call "rider protection" meaning that they will come out to service calls that involve you and your two wheeled method of conveyance(aka you bike). In Oklahoma the membership is around $78.00 and has saved me thousands over the last 11 years. My grandparents bought me a membership when I turned 16 and began to drive and I haven't let it lapse ever since. They will even bring you gas FREE OF CHARGE, UP TO 5 GALLONS, if you run out!!! They also do lock outs and the inevitable "lost key" problem you have.
