I also apologize for my first post being about a problem.
Most first posts ARE about a problem.
Your English is better than some who know no other language.

It does sound like it ran out of gas.
If there is plenty in the tank, then fuel filter or fuel pump.
I think you need to verify fuel before chasing an electrical problem.
A can of "starter fluid" or some propane can be useful.

and try to find some starter fluid. They're not plenty around in Korea but I'm sure I can find a can somewhere.
A hand held propane torch can be used too.
Do NOT light the torch. Put the burner into the air intake and open the propane valve to put a shot of propane in the air cleaner housing. Shut off the torch and try to start the Spyder.
If it tries to fire, sputters and dies, then you know you have a fuel problem.
If trying that a couple of times produces no different results, then you probably have a spark problem and need to test the spark at one of the plugs.
