I honestly don't know, but I think it's worth it, personally. If you like it, I guess it's up to you, and if you don't well, your an arse.
I'd say take it to a tech, ask him why it's happened, cost to fix etc. Then if it's something which you could do, you might wanna try yourself, but I think it'd be safer letting a tech have a go at glueing it back down.

I can't find anything about them.

They're made in Japan, and are a Japanese company. They made copies of higher brand companies basically, but were pretty good. They stopped after the Kobe earthquake, I think their factory was destroyed or something. Their guitars were made to almost identical specs. as other brands such as Martin and Gibson.

Don't underestimate the genius of Japanese guitars. They are usually constructed very well. Japan mirrors the US in its ability to produce some terrible guitars and some great guitars. Just don't dismiss it for being Japanese.
