Yes, Doreen many (if not all) ornamental types will pollinate Korean Giant
(and it may be partially self).

Also, there is not such thing as a truly dwarfing stock for asian pear.

Spring sprung here, peaches in petal fall to shuck split, apples beginning
to bloom...

I purchased and planted a 2-in-1 Asian pear tree from Stark Bros. in Spring
2004.  It's Korean Giant (they call it Olympic Hardy Giant) on dwarf stock
with Shinseki grafted on it.  The Korean Giant part is blooming now, but the
grafts do not have flowers.  A number of ornamental pears are also blooming
in the area now.  Will any of them pollinate the Korean Giant?
